Happy "Every PWD (Person w/Diabetes) In The World ROCKS Day!!!"

Today is National Make Your Own Holiday Day – I kid you not Diabetesaliciousness readers- it really is.

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:

  1. 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.
  1. 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!
  1. Whenever one of our people (a.k.a. PWDs) needs help, other people with diabetes are there to lend a helping hand! WE ROCK
  1. PWDs speak the same diabetes language- without ever having to utter a word! We get and accept one another- faulty pancreas and and all!


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!

I'm glad you used the word bodily harm in point number 2. I know I've had some discussions with particularly fervant members of the Diabetic Police that may have resulted in thier egos getting bruised... just saying

Well we gotta hand it you Miss K for rocking it as well!

A shout out to all the other PWD's!

Rock on!

I agree! We PWDs really do rock! I love this community so much. So, do we get a t-shirt design for holiday???

Point (3) has really hit home in the past couple of days... Haven't heard from my friend beyond his thanks for the information and his intention to pursue the avenues I have forwarded him (gathered from our blogs, communities, and resource sites)... still, good to be able to "be there and share", pass it in, and "pay it forward".

Rock on, baby!

I think sometimes we don't give ourselves enough credit for all of the hard work we put in to manage this disease. Thanks for reminding us - we all rock!!!
