Diabetes Blog Week Post #6
Today’s topic: Snapshot Saturday
I’m not typically a weekend blogger, but I couldn’t skip this weekend (or last weekend for that matter).

For being an “invisible” illness, diabetes can be very visible in many parts of our lives. From the bionic parts to the medical supply stashes or the polka dotted, callused fingertips and bruised infusion sites.
Sometimes strangers think our diabetes devices are cell phones or our CGMs are fancy band aids, which reminds me that it’s not visible to everyone. But sometimes people see something and assume it’s diabetes but it’s simply scars on your arm from having the chicken pox or a bandaged paper cut.
