The Office and Diabetes

There isn’t anything about Diabetes that I keep private. I am the first to say “oops, I shouldn’t have ate this or darn my A1C is high.” I talk about Diabetes every where I go and happy to answer any questions I am asked about Diabetes. I am blessed to have a job that doesn’t look at diabetes as a bad thing. I am glad my Supervisor understands.

Today’s blog:

My supervisor came to my desk today and this is what happened

Supervisor: I know you have diabetes and I really need your help

Me: Ok

Supervisor: There is a 19 year kid and he needs an insulin pump.

Me: Ok

Supervisor: He doesn’t have any insurance and he was told he needs an insulin pump. Can you help me?

Me: Sure. He can try Ipump.org

Supervisor: Can you get on the Internet and print the information? I don’t know where to start.

Me: Sure.

I logged on to the Internet. I went to ipump.org and also the islets of hope website to gather the information. I know it may not seem like a lot of information but this will help.
I took the paper work and gave it to my Supervisor. I let her know if she needed anything else or have any questions about diabetes to let me know.
She thanked me and I left her office.

The End

You never know who your helping, diabetes is ok at “The Office”.

Sorry for any typo’s I’m blogging from my iPhone.
