"Recently various petitions have been circulating the Diabetes Online Community, so today let’s pretend to write our own. Tell us who you would write the petition to – a person, an organization, even an object (animate or inanimate) - get creative!! What are you trying to change and what have you experienced that makes you want this change? (Thanks to Briley of inDpendence for this topic suggestion.)"

We the Undersigned, all people living with type 1, type 1.5, and type 2 diabetes, and our family and loved ones, (and who we lovingly refer to as type 3s, ) pledge (as in promise, cross our hearts and hope to never have to eat liver in any way, shape and form,) to continually bust diabetes myths while perpetuating diabetes realities.
And by media I/WE are referring to reporters; news producers, station managers, bloggers and the likes there. And we will not hesitate to call them out when we see shlock diabetes reporting on the news, be it local or national.
We, the fantastical undersigned, promise to flip our Diabetes BitchSwitches whenever and where ever we see Diabetes Media Muck-ups. And we promise to write emails, pick up the phone and make all sorts of noise when it comes to perpetuating diabetes realities and educating the public on life with diabetes - in all its forms and dimensions.
