Diabetes Awareness Month.

Call it what you like - "National Diabetes Awareness Month", "American Diabetes Month", "Diabetes Awareness Month" - but November is a month to raise awareness of what it's like to live with diabetes, and to advocate for research towards a cure.  In that spirit, I'm planning to post a blog about diabetes every day this month - 30 posts in 30 days.  (I hope.)  I don't typically blog that often, but I think I'm feeling up to the challenge.

I hope you'll join me - and if you don't already blog, this is the perfect time to start!  You can start a blog (for free) on sites like Blogger.com and Wordpress.org, or start one on diabetes communities like Juvenation.org, TuDiabetes.org, and the ADA's new "Connect" community.

I'll be talking about a few different ways to get involved over the next 30 days, and I'll be doing a guest post for another website as well.  You'll still find me discussing my day-to-day with diabetes here, and I might even find a guest blogger or two to help me out here. 

Does anyone else find it funny that the acronym for Diabetes Awareness Month is almost a swear word?  Kind of appropriate, I think.
