We see natural disasters happen all the time, fires, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, all often requiring the evacuation of a fair amount of people. For example, right now 10,000+ people are under evacuation orders in southern California. Considering that 8% of the population of the USA are diabetics (and that is the known count, in actuality it is suspected the rate is more like 10-15%) that leaves 800 diabetics right now, displaced.
Are you prepared? Do you have a plan? How would you handle short notice uprooting of your normal habitat and routine?
I am addressing this to the newly diagnosed because we are new, a little overwhelmed and less likely to think along these lines yet but everyone should have a plan!
