One Day in My Shoes

I think this is awesome and would love it if anyone would like to participate.  If you do participate, please let me know how it went for you...

Be T1D for a Day

undefinedThroughout 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.
Click here to sign up via web. You will receive a text message with a confirmation code to complete your registration.
  • Sign up by 4 PM on October 31 to begin your T1D for a Day challenge on November 1-T1Day.
  • When you sign up by 4 PM on November 1 through 29, your T1D for a Day challenge will begin the following day.
By the end of this one-day challenge, you will have greater insight into what it means when we say that people with T1D never get a day off.
Thank you for participating in T1D for a Day!
Participation in T1D for a Day is free of charge. (Standard text messaging rates apply.)
The information in JDRF's T1D for a Day text challenge is offered for general educational purposes and is not intended to replace professional medical advice. You should not make any changes to the management of type 1 diabetes without first consulting your physician or other qualified medical professional.
