Today is Freaky Friday –
Just like in the movie, today we’re doing a swap. If you could switch chronic diseases, which one would you choose to deal with instead of diabetes? And while we’re considering other chronic conditions, do you think your participation in the DOC has affected how you treat friends and acquaintances with other medical conditions? (Thanks to Jane of Jane K. Dickinson, RN, PhD, CDE and Bob of T Minus Two for this topic suggestion.)”
Whenever I pass by or I’m dealing with another person, I try to remember the saying – Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
I believe all chronic diseases come with their own unique set of challenges. I cannot see myself switching chronic diseases because I do not wish type 1 diabetes on anyone.
I decided to do the next best thing and go in search of how others live with their chronic disease. I found this YouTube video by Hank Green, in which he talks about living with ulcerative colitis and how extremely lucky he feels for having the support of family and friends and his Internet community.
Take a moment and watch the video.
