Maybe I'm just a little burnt out on diabetes talk, or something, but what I'm more burnt out on anything is the word diabetes. How many times a day do you think you say or write the word "diabetes." I feel like I might be up to 50 or 70 times a day sometimes because of my work within diabetes. I don't even LIKE the word! I actually did a little research to see where it came from...and it literally was derived from the latin word for "passing thru" because when people were first developing diabetes, they were "passing excessive amounts of urine."
Our disease literally got its name from the fact that when our blood sugars are really out whack, we have to pee a lot.
I might try to keep track one day of how many times I say or write the word, "diabetes"....what do you think your total might be?
