There are a couple of things you can do to participate:
1) Be a type 1 for a day. Through the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), you can experience a tiny bit of what we go through each day. If you are game, sign up to receive text messages for 24 hours. You will receive text messages throughout the day to let you know what a type 1 experiences, minus the finger sticks and injections, in a day. Text T1D4ADAY to 63566. You will receive a confirmation text that completes your registration. Or visit
http://www.jdrf.org/index.cfm?page_id=117942 for more information.
2) The Big Blue Test. Check your blood sugar, do a little exercise, check your blood sugar again, then log the results at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. The goal is 20,000 tests by November 14, World Diabetes Day. The organization will donate diabetes supplies to people in need.
Do it for these 2 that I love so very much.
