I was running on 2 hours of sleep in a 48 hour period . I had just got off work and I had a choice . Drive home and sleep or go to the Diabetes Expo … Well being the Expo come only once a year I drove to Seattle and went the expo … It was nice as always seeing all the different booths/companies that were catering to diabetics … Talk about information overload esp since I was dealing with a serious lack of sleep … A lot if people were taking advantage of the free health screening being done … Everything from eye exams , the getting your feet checked out , A1c testing etc u name it they were doing it … Happy to see that provided for people , I really saw the need because of the crowds waiting their turn … I checked out what I could , got my freebies , made a donation and signed up to walk to stop diabetes then left … Got home and slept … If they have an ADA Diabetes Expo near you , I'd recommend you attend it's free and it's all about you the diabetic …

Obviously people SELLING stuff… a presentation or two (of some type/kind ???) what else was there? Always wanted to get the vendor list SEE if whomever was there it would be worth my time… after four plus decades "beginner" stuff /booths/presentations not really that useful…

What do EXPO's hold for those of us with some meaningful "time in" with this dragon??? People with decades…?
