It is the night before I leave for Washington D.C on the first of what I hope to be many Call to Congress visits on behalf of the American Diabetes Association. I have to admit - I feel a little bit like I did before the first day of school. Over 200 advocates from across the country have been selected, and I have a feeling that I will eat, drink, sleep diabetes for the next few days.
The ADA has been great in prepping us with what to expect, but I have yet to figure out exactly what I want to say. I just know that it will come from the heart. (Or maybe my pancreas!)
I look forward to sharing my story with members of Congress and with all of you.
I’ve never been very good about doing this, but I think this trip will be an especially good opportunity to “tweet”. So if you feel so inclined or are curious about what I’m up to in D.C., feel free to follow me on Twitter. Just a disclaimer - I don’t always “tweet” about diabetes, after all, it doesn’t rule my life.
