Today is World diabetes day! If you’re a diabetic like myself this is a day to be thankful for all the great doctors, nurses, friends and family who have taken care of me since my diagnosis in 2016.
I’m grateful to be able to walk and see well even with all my complications I’ve endured being a diabetic. The foot operations, and blurred vision were a wake up call to take better care of myself.
There are many of my fellow diabetics who have gone through similar complications. I pray for them as well, and wish them nothing but good health and a better tomorrow.
Unfortunately though, there are many diabetics who can’t afford the proper care and medications needed to give them a fighting chance to control this disease. If you a family member or friend that are pre-diabetes or a type 1 or 2 diabetic, and are unable to endure the endless barrage of bills from medications, or vital equipment and supplies needed to help fight this disease, and if you’re able to help, please do.
Donate old medical equipment, or unneeded medical supplies to your local hospitals, and rehabilitation facilities to help your fellow diabetics.
They’re are many people who need to be helped tothe right direction to find programs that provide low cost or no cost diabetic supplies. So local hospitals offer financial assistance for patients who are having trouble paying their bills and receiving life saving equipment and medication .
My local hospital near me in Bucks county Pa.named St.Mary medical center provides financial assistance to help with inflated medicine and hospital bills. They helped me when I needed it, and I am eternally grateful.
So today if you have a family member or friend suffering from diabetes, lend them a helping hand. If they just want to talk, or need a ride to their doctors and you’re able to help , please do!
Stay safe and healthy!
