Last year, November 2010, I had just arrived here in the USA and I was doing a volunteer internship at Diabetes Hands Foundation, it was when, one day, Manny asked me... "Would you like to make a speech for the World Diabetes Day?" I thought "Why not?" It was a joy to be able to share my feelings around diabetes with people who really understand! I will always keep this moment with me. Now I am glad to share it with you, thanks for watching!

Hi Em,
Thank You so much :) Your words are so kind and really brought me a smile on my face.
I am better, just went through several crazy BG days, maybe its my finals making that to me?
One day at a time. Diabetes is no joke, I just watched a JDRF video, they did it to raise money for the cure... VERY moving.
Hope u are doing well!!

Oi Clau!
Thanks sweetie, I am on fcb as Fabiana Couto, did not find you too :(
I would LOVE to talk to the the ADJ's Young Group!! Sometimes we say things to others and it is a way to say it out loud to our ownselves... For me thats a good way to go and keep up with the motivation!! When I am in Brazil I will sure let you know, can't wait to meet u in person!
Take care dear! Beijos

Wow, Fabi. Thanks so much for sharing this video. I had not seen it before, and it's really wonderful. You're a great public speaker!!  And so brave to give a speech in English  :)


The song at the beginning of the video is one of the songs I used to listen to when I was sad about my health  :)

I hope you're feeling better this week, and that your blood sugar is improving.


Con un abrazote,
