Then an insurance issue forced me out the door and I had to find an adult care team. The change was traumatic. It took about a decade for me to find another team I felt comfortable with, and my diabetes management surely suffered because of it.
I love that this is available. Big thanks to JDNL for organizing it every year. They 8767 re also planning one near Chicago in September. As I mentioned earlier, there are only a few spots left for August 9th in the Twin Cities, so register now if you 8767 re interested!
Disclosure: I am not compensated by The Diabetes Collective, Inc. for my time or energy working The Diabetes UnConference events, nor do I earn anything for registrations. My travel, lodging, and some meals are paid for, but I am not otherwise compensated by The Diabetes Collective, Inc. I enjoy these events and it 8767 s an honor to represent myself, Scott 8767 s Diabetes, and mySugr to serve and help The Diabetes Collective, Inc. when requested.
As the agenda is created by the attendees leading up to the conference, so expect the unexpected! That being said, expect that you’ll be surrounded by those who understand how you feel about living with diabetes (or a loved one with diabetes). Expect to feel safe and not judged for expressing your feelings and thoughts. Expect to meet people who will become confidants and friends. Expect to not feel alone. Expect to leave with new knowledge and ideas for living a healthy life with diabetes. And of course, expect to have fun.
Applicant institutions for both the full institutional grant and the planning grant may submit more than one application, provided that each application is scientifically distinct.
Between the decision to be honest about the positive and the negative and realizing that rose-colored glasses were starting to impact how I looked at things. I decided to write a book about chronic illness and mental health. I’m aiming to balance the positive and the negative together on growing up in general but also with chronic illness and mental health along for the ride.
These may sound like little things, but I tell you, they make a difference to people who don 8767 t know anything about diabetes. Just think about the difference between 8775 living with 8776 and 8775 suffer. 8776 There 8767 s a huge difference there, right? There is to me, and I know which one I prefer.
About two years ago, I realized that I was applying rose-colored glasses to a lot of things in my life already at the age of 77. I was starting to say that all the bad things were worth it or completely ignoring them. I firmly believe that yes I can do it. That I (and others) can get through things. But I want to acknowledge that it can suck. That’s what life is. It’s what I needed to do.
