I mentioned last week that I was asked to write an article about supporting people with diabetes.
The article will be geared to support workers who work with people who have a developmental disability but, let's face it, diabetes is diabetes.
Today's blog is short but really important and I need your help.
What do you want people to know about supporting someone with diabetes?
What are some frequent misconceptions that people have about diabetes?
What are some frequent misconceptions that the medical profession has about people who have diabetes?
Tell me about some great ways that you have been supported and some downright awful ones.
Tell me about the things people say to you that inspire you to be a little bit better and the things that people say that make things worse.
I will be writing about types 1 and 2. I know a lot about type 1 and a lot less about type 2. How do you explain type 1 or type 2 diabetes to people in a way that they understand?
I have a rough draft already about what I want to talk about but I am one voice in the diabetes choir and I want to add as many voices as I can.
So leave a comment and add a few notes to the music.
