D-Blog Week: What They Should Know

Third Annual Diabetes Blog Week! What is one thing you would tell someone that doesn’t have diabetes about living with diabetes? The first thing that popped into my head when I saw that question was a great quote from my buddy George Simmons.

Imagine having to pump your own heart because it didn’t do it by itself. And when you want to sleep you have to pump it slower. For exercise you would have to speed it up. You would have to know the rate of pumping for every activity. Do you think you could do it? Do you think it would be easy?

I love that.
