Be T1D for a Day

I think this is a nifty little thing, although not even close to my life on a daily basis, but it should help you get a little bit of an understanding of the crap we do on a daily basis...

Throughout November, we're asking people to better appreciate what people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) experience every day, every hour by taking part in a unique mobile-based challenge: T1D for a Day.
When you sign up for the T1D for a Day text challenge, you agree to receive as many as 24 text messages over a 24-hour period that simulate the constant blood sugar testing, insulin injections, and dietary decisions that confront people with T1D.
While no virtual campaign can recreate the many needles required or the physical and financial tolls of this serious disease, T1D for a Day seeks to deepen understanding of the many heroic steps our friends and loved ones with T1D take each day.
Please sign up for the T1D for a Day challenge now!
Text T1D4ADAY to 63566. You will receive a confirmation text that completes your registration.

Alternatively you could send me your phone number and I'll send you a text every time I do something diabetes related... Yeah, don't do that. I'd need to send you hundreds of texts...
