Diabetes-Blog Week: Day Two - We, the Undersigned

Today's topic: Recently various petitions have been circulating the Diabetes Online Community, so today let's pretend to write our own. Tell us who you would write the petition to – a person, an organization, even an object (animate or inanimate) - get creative!! What are you trying to change and what have you experienced that makes you want this change?

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. 


  1. Oh, heck yeah! Wouldn't that be great? Nice!

  2. That'd be awesome. (I'm all for that!)

  3. I would sign that petition in a flash!!

  4. I'm on board for this - heck, I'd even settle for one day a month!!

  5. Oh my goodness that would be nice! I would even settle for just one day out of a month or heck even one day out of the year!
