Howdy Diab­tetS­mall­worl­d! WELCOME to DC!

I love DiaabeticConnect too! Otherwise I guess I wouldn't have remained here for 3 years!

However I am NOT diabetic. I am a person with diabetes (or PWD). I am much more than a diagnosis. Nobody refers to somebody with a diagnosis of cancer as a "canceretic".

I worked in a hospital for a time and I was sensitized to the person behind the diagnosis.

I know it is just easier to say "diabetic" and I catch myself doing that every so often too.

Praying God's richest blessings be on you and yours

James
