What Does “A Day in the Life of Diabetes” Mean to You?

American Diabetes Month® is coming up soon in November! This is a time to focus the nation’s attention on the issues surrounding diabetes and the many people impacted by the disease. This year’s theme is A Day in the Life of Diabetes.

Too many Americans think of diabetes as a minor hindrance rather than a life-changing disease. But if you have diabetes or care for someone with diabetes, you know differently. You know the work, the worries, the struggles and triumphs.

That’s why we need you to help us show what A Day in the Life of Diabetes is really like.

Starting today, we’re asking people to share a personal image representing what A Day in the Life of Diabetes means to them via our Facebook page. Tell us about the extraordinary effort that goes into living an ordinary day. The image can be of yourself, someone you care about, an object, a place, a scene—whatever you choose. Together the photos will help build a mosaic that shows the true picture of diabetes.

For every photo/image uploaded, CVS/pharmacy® will donate $1 to the Association, up to $25,000. CVS/pharmacy is a proud sponsor of the A Day in the Life of Diabetes campaign.

To learn more about the CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare Advantage for Diabetes® savings program exclusively for those living with diabetes and their caregivers, visit CVS.com/diabetes.

So head on over to Facebook and add your own chapter to the story by uploading your photo today. We look forward to seeing what A Day in the Life of Diabetes means to you!

And stay tuned throughout October and November as we highlight photo submissions and the many other ways the community will come together to Stop Diabetes®.

    The justdonttellme.com website is hosted by Ipage. I am a 56 year old diabetic. I have Type 2 Diabetes. The website was part of my therapy which I am not ashamed of, nor am I proud of. In 2008 I had a stroke. In July 2010 I had a toe amputated from my left foot and in August of 2010 I had surgery to my abdomen to repair a hernia and an ulcer which left me with a 6-7 inch scar. My ex-wife and her male companion decided to take advantage of my situation and so I filed for divorce and end a 32 year marriage. There were times when I wanted to commit suicide. I was alone, confused, and scared. My grown children were confused by their mother, because she was just going along with her “plan”. My website blog explains the part of the scenario. I would like to explain the rest of my story by becoming an advocate. I feel I have come a long way in such a short but painful period of time. This is something that shouldn’t have happened, but it did. Please allow me to tell my story.
