Since this month is Diabetes Awareness I was just wondering what others are doing to promote and show support during this month? Every Friday me and my co workers will be designing and wearing a blue t-shirt to support Blue Friday.

Neat. It identifies you as a T2 and a someone seeking balance in your life.

And it's also a built in medical alert identification tag! :)

That is a great idea. I'm always worried that I would lose a medical alert bracelet or dog tags. Thanx for the idea. I love tats and this one provides needed information. Once again thank you.

Anytime! I'm glad I could help! I designed this myself. I would suggest you design your own too! Since you will have to look at it every day! :)

For this month am willing to share my diabetes story and experience to my friends, community and colleagues. Creating awareness of the blue circle symbol for it to be known well like the red ribbon. I will be wearing the bracelet especially when am going for field work as the community from rural areas will be curious to know about it and i will be having good opportunity to tell them.

I have not decided. I think I will get a sticker for my car, and maybe send an email out to those who I know about the statistics of Diabetes. Nice to hear of your co-workers support.

I think making this personal is important. I am a real person they know and love, not just a number that does not touch close to home. And I am a person with Diabetes…I need a cure.

I'm totally doing the t-shirt thing. If you need any ideas i had posted a discussion and asked about ideas for t's. A member posted some really good sayings and a site to buy t-shirts also. Good Luck!
