Admiring our differences

On February 29, 2012 by Cherise Shockley

DSMA’s topic this week is Admiring our Differences from Diabetes Blog Week 2011. I felt DSMA needed to take moment to admire the differences of not only the condition but the people affected by diabetes.


1) When did you get diagnosed with diabetes? What Type of diabetes do you live with?

2) In what ways has social media  given you insight to another diagnosis story?  ie, videos, podcast, blogs

3) What lessons have  you  learned from those with a different type from yours (or your child’s)?

4) Do you consider your diabetes to be a disease or condition? Why or why not?

5) What type of diabetes would you most like to learn more about? and why?

Despite any differences we may have-

6)  What can we do to continue to educate each other and make our collective voice stronger outseide of the community?
