    Pretty good graphic – unfortunately, there is only so much you can put into a simple graphic before it gets overloaded. Still, I like both Amy’s and your suggestions, Mike.

    Just to demonstrate the complexity, I would add a couple. First, the classic, “I am a person who just happens to also have diabetes.” Next, “Insulin therapy does not mean I have failed (or have the more serious form of diabetes).”

    I use the term PWD (person (s) with diabetes rather than diabetics. It helps me remember that the condition does not define who one is.

      I think that is so nitpicky and ridiculous. If the disease doesn’t define you, then don’t let it… it’s not an issue of semantics/wordplay, but of your mindset. I hate that people use the term “PWD” – it can just be confusing to those on the outside. I’ve been doing this for over 18 years and it has never bothered me to be labeled “diabetic.”
