So in honor of this fantastical holiday, I’ve decided to make up my own holiday called: “Every PWD (Person with diabetes) in the World With Diabetes ROCKS DAY”.
Why? Because I absolutely believe that every single person in the world with diabetes does rock!
PWDs “ROCK” on many levels, such as but not limited too:
- We deal with diabetes 24 X 7, 365 days a year- and are not diabetes exempt from vacations, religious holidays, family emergencies, or mental health days. So yeah, WE ROCK.
- We deal with the Diabetes Police on a daily basis and no PWD that I’m aware of has committed bodily harm to said members of the Diabetes Police. Again- WE ROCK!
- Whenever one of our people (a.k.a. PWDs) needs help, other people with diabetes are there to lend a helping hand! WE ROCK
- PWDs speak the same diabetes language- without ever having to utter a word! We get and accept one another- faulty pancreas and and all!
So my friends, HAPPY “EVERY PWD IN THE WORLD ROCKS DAY!”
If you’re a PWD, give yourself a hand, because YOU ROCK!
If you’re a Type 3- tell the person with diabetes in your life how much they ROCK!
