Small change, big difference

Tomorrow is the first day of Diabetes awareness week.

It affects two million people in the UK and a further three quarters of a million don't even know that they have it. I recently transitioned from the second group into the first group and whilst I knew it was inevitable (as my Dad and his brother were/are Type 2 diabetics) having it confirmed that I have a chronic condition was still devastating.

You can find out if you are at risk by taking the two minute test HERE.

As to the campaign, I'm going to do a charity stunt to raise money at work on Friday.

More about that during the week, it is still a big secret at the moment.

It doesn't involve taking your clothes off, does it?!

Liz- no, you'll have to wait until February for that!

Well done for highlighting the condition, Deli. Look forward to hearing about your stunt.
