Describe Diabetes in ONE Word!
Recently, I asked members of the Diabetes Online Community (DOC) to describe diabetes to them using only one word.
I knew this would be a challenge, as diabetes can be described with so many different feelings and so many different words.
However, it was pretty amazing to see what everyone came up with. No matter our battle (Type 1 or Type 2), diabetes is definitely a chronic condition that touches even the most intimate moments in someone’s life.
If you are here reading this article, and do not have diabetes yourself, it will be a real eye opener. To look at what others feel like their diabetes truly is to them by using only one word is quite heartbreaking. While some also take a positive spin on it and choose to be optimistic. Read on to find out what everyone thinks about diabetes, both type 1 and type 2.
