Everyone always asks me "Diabetes? What's that? What is it like having diabetes?" Sometimes I pretend I'm a Certified Diabetes Educator and pull out my trusty white board and flashcards but that doesn't seem to get many good responses. It's like I am speaking Swahili, which I can't.
So, I thought up different ways to explain what the big D feels like to our non-D friends, family and strangers on the street. It starts as a bit of a rant and ends with me singing. Not quite sure how that happened but enjoy!
