Blogs » As Sweet As Can Be With Diabetes » Call to Congress part three


Sorry to have kept you on the edge of your seat, but I have been well stressing. So here we are. I have an extension to make some money, and I can only hope that I can come up with the funds. This event is not just about a trip to Washington, or the capraesque moment, its about Diabetes. Why is this important? Not many people get the chance to sit one on one with Members of Congress. There is a lot I want to share with them. We are still only using theories to treat diabetes. This disease literally differs from one body to another. I know, my whole family is diabetic and we are ohhh so different in terms of treatment. What works for one does not work for the other. The frustrating part is that Diabetes is still not seen as a disease. Diabetes will destroy your body, faster if untreated. I wonder sometimes if Members of Congress understand what we go through, what it feels like to be a diabetic.

I think there is a lot our government does not know and I aim to make them aware. Yes I am still looking for a sponsor so contact me if you want to help. I want to go to Washington, not just for me and my family..but for all the others who ram a needle in their finger every day just so they can eat a meal.
