Make a difference in the lives of others with diabetes!

Do you or someone you love have diabetes? How has it affected your life? Have you run into diabetes related complications? Has it put weight on and damaged your career, your relationships, your quality of life? Do you want to share your story?

Hello everyone. I am writing an ebook on diabetes and I would love to include stories, real stories, your stories. This is strictly a volunteer opportunity. You will be quoted with your story (or you can choose a pen name or choose to remain anonymous).

If you would like to take part in this ebook meant to be a starting place for those with diabetes, a place where they can begin to learn that being diabetic does not mean that they cannot LIVE, please send the following by October 31, 2013 to lettertoadiabetic@gmail.com:

-Name (use the name you want to be quoted as or type “anon” to remain anonymous
-Email address
-City and State of residence (optional)
Diabetes Type (1, 2, LADA, etc)
-Age at time of diagnosis
-Your diabetes story (no more than 1,000 words please)
-Include EVERYTHING in the body of your email – attachments will not be opened

I hope that you will take this opportunity to share your story and let others know that we are not alone. There are a lot of us out there and we don’t have to be smothered by the weight of a lonely diabetic life. Let’s get the word out. WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!
