DSMA November Blog Carnival - Change

This month's blog carnival asks:

What is the one thing (advocacy, grassroots) you will do different this year? How will you accomplish your task?

I'm sad to say that I haven't accomplished many of the tasks I wanted to this year. I wanted to take part in sponsored events to raise awareness and money for Diabetes, but sometimes the best laid plans remain exactly that, plans.

I'm going to stick to my plans, despite being late.. and next year I will take part in any events that I can get to. I've neglected my Diabetes emotionally this year which hasn't been brilliant, so a rocket has been placed under my butt to get me moving!

I'd like to head to more Diabetes meets next year as well, being with fellow PWD always makes me smile and the people I've met through it have been lovely and I'd love to meet a few more. You can't beat a room of people pulling out their meters to test before a meal and finding out who's hypo and who's high.

One task I did accomplish this year was my WDD project, which in turn helped me advocate when people asked why a blue blanket :)

So next year I'm going to try and get back into the DOC properly, blog more and wear my Teapot Diabetic tee as much as possible ^_^

Bye bye 2012

Bring on 2013!

Sometimes it's so hard to get done everything we have plans to do, but your Blue Blanket project was a great advocacy success so you should be proud of that!! And carrying your other plans over into the new year sounds perfect!

Totally agree with Karen. Couldn't have said it better myself. AND don't underestimate the power of simply telling your story. :-)
