WEGO Health Activist Writer's Challenge Month - Day 7





I'm participating in the WEGO Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge. Today’s topic: Health Activist Choice.


Today I want to write about the importance of support. Tomorrow I'm having breakfast with Bea. It's my second time meeting up with someone from the Diabetes Online Community. Last time we talked about the similarities between Type 1 diabetes and Type 2. It was good to connect with someone who understands.

Next week is the American Diabetes Association Expo in Chicago. Several people I've met on Twitter will be there. We know each other through blog posts and Tweets, but to see one another face to face is going to be amazing. I've been looking forward to it for weeks.

One of the tougher parts of living with health issues is loneliness. People in my daily life don't always understand what I'm going through, even though they try. Having meetups reminds me that I don't have to deal with illness alone, and that matters to me.

Together is a powerful word.
