Hi guys and girls, today I received good news, I'll be one of 60 taking part in JDRF UK Type 1 in Parliament, an equivalent to the congress the US has. It's the first diabetes lobbying event the UK has had! I'm very pleased as I can help raise the side of diabetes that many keep quiet, the depression, the not looking after your diabetes etc. I'm really looking forward to it.
Yet I'm feeling quite deflated today, I spent the weekend at my family home and now back in a house share with some idiots! Which really doesn't help, I guess I'm also slightly annoyed but not surprised that the place I work at didn't even listen to me today or they didn't care that I was going to parliament. No doubt that when they hear me on the radio they will be speaking to me about it! I want to improve my diabetes control yet it's just not happening, I guess I have very little confidence or self esteem at the min.
Anyway happy World Diabetes Day everyone!
