I’m participating in WEGO Health’s National Health Blog Post Month (#NHBPM) during the month of November. I’ll be writing 30 posts in 30 days based on the prompts they supply. Learn more here. Wish me luck!
Today’s prompt: “Community Care Package. Create the perfect care package for your members or fellow patients…”
I’m about to go out of town for a work conference until next Thursday, so forgive me if I’m a bit scattered (and probably will be through next week!). I have a feeling I’ll use one or two of my free ‘get out of NHBPM’ cards in the next few days..
If I were making a care package for someone in my diabetes community, I would include some of the presents I bought myself for diabetes awareness month:
- A plush pancreas (it really, really made me laugh)
- Diabetes Awareness Earrings
- A ‘Type 1’ Sweatshirt (questions will be asked, advocating will happen!)
But, I think there would be some practical things I would include, too. Right?
- Insulin (woooo!)
- Test Strips
- A fun new meter (who doesn’t like new gear??)
- A new pump skin/cover
- Sweet new bag to keep a buncha d-crap in
Now it sounds like I’m just packing for someone’s vacation. How about something fun?
- A big ass pie
And that’s all I’ve got for tonight, folks. My sincere apologies 🙂
