As most of you may realize I am a diabetic. I even have a separate category on my blog called Diabetes Saga. If you want click into Miki's Hope and scroll down to Labels on the left side bar-it has about 19 posts in there! I am one of the lucky ones who has managed to control it with diet and 2 Metformin pills a day. I don't need Insulin and hope I never do, Just the other day I received a notice under my door. The part that caught my immediate attention was that if you use syringes to administer Insulin (or other medications I assume)--that you are not allowed to throw them in the garbage-even if they are contained in a plastic container. Now I know for a fact that pharmacies will not take back unused medication-they will not dispose of it. I have no idea if hospitals will take these syringes and put them in the hazardous red boxes. What in the world are these people going to do? If anyone knows please write it in a comment below!! Diabetes is so prevalent it is frightening.
Today I received not one but two requests to spread the word. I have received nothing for this post!! I have it listed under my Charity tab.
If you or a friend or a loved one has diabetes won't you please consider signing up and become a Diabetic Advocate or perhaps you would like to join in on theTourdeCure. There are many other activities where you can help as well as keeping yourself fit.
The second email was about a site the American Diabetes Organization runs called Gift of Hope. There are some really nice items in there for holiday gift giving. Of course there are other items as well, All proceeds help the American Diabetes Organization with its important work! There is an online catalogue where you can view all they have to offer.
I hope you are able to help--even if it is giving a dollar or two when asked by a store you frequent. Every little bit helps!
