VLOG: National Diabetes Week

Hello hello! It's National Diabetes Week here in Australia and taking inspiration from Frank at Type 1 Writes I've decided to have a crack at vlogging.

Scary.... I know.

I believe the best way to raise awareness is through sharing stories, so here's mine. Apologies in advance for the blank gazes and "um's". Apparently, being a speech pathology student doesn't mean you're immune to presentation anxiety. Woops.

In the vlog I say I'm not a big fan of National Diabetes Week. I think it's a wonderful idea and the messages are fantastic. But I really dislike how it is pitched toward complications a lot of the time. There must be a better, more encouraging way. I hope sharing stories is an example of that.



Tomorrow I'll be posting a vlog on how my insulin pump works as part of raising awareness. Keep an eye out for that slightly less cringe worthy vlog!

Edit: I've now seen the video for t1. Fantastic and much better message! I wish the t2 video was presented more like this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd_810jof6Y
