A Day to "Act Now"

Morning all,

I hope you will indulge me a little tangental offering today. As you know, I am a Type 1 Diabetic and today is World Diabetes Day.

If you or someone you love has had a suspicion that something is not "quite right" or if you have a history of Diabetes in your family, why not choose TODAY to ACT ON IT....and get a test or talk to your GP. Sadly, a lot of the population have symptoms of Diabetes (especially Type 2 Diabetes) and do not even know that they are at risk or have it. There is an easy to follow guide from Diabtets Australia here that lists that people that may be at risk and the signs and symptoms of diabetes.

Ironically, I was diagnosed on World Diabetes day and so today celebrate 14 years of living with Type 1 Diabetes.

Thanks for letting me have this little side bar. I promise to resume normal crafting programming next time.
