We, the undersigned, petition the diabetes gods for a day of rest.
Rationale: diabetes is omnipresent and diabetes management is relentless, taking a toll on everyone involved.
Specifics: we request that you consider our petition for one 24-day out of seven to be diabetes-free. The day must be consistent every week so that we know what to expect and when to expect it. There must be no extra punishment on the six diabetes days. And rest days must be granted to everyone with diabetes, no matter their A1C, their carb-counting skills or the frequency of their blood glucose testing.
