Although the choice of my career was the biggest changed in my life, the other change that I have noticed is my role as an educator to people around me who have become curious about diabetes, especially my insulin pump. I explain how everything works for me at least once a week, and it has become something I love to do to help people better understand. Although I love helping people explain my care, I would even more so enjoy helping people enjoy my cure. The only way we are going to get there is by raising the money necessary to do the research. So please, if at all possible donate to the Joslin High Hopes fund here http://www.joslin.org/giving/
PS: Sunday is my 7 year anniversary of being a diabetic, and I couldn't have made it here without the care provided by Joslin, so a big thanks to all my doctors and nurses for keeping me healthy.
Have a great thanksgiving,
