Happy Diabetic Challenge


Type 1 Diabetes is an alienating, depressive, and down-right difficult disease. In order to combat that, I challenge you to become a happy diabetic, to change your mindset, to be POSITIVE.

In order to do that, change needs to physically happen. Here’s what I want us to do:

Post one picture each day for 100 days (or however many you want), showing what you are thankful for, happy for, grateful for, etc… related to your diabetic life. Find the little things that make you happy. It won’t always be easy, but each day will become easier as you’re more aware of your positive mindset.

Tag your photos with: #happydiabeticdays AND #day1happydiabeticdays (*changes for each day, second day, day2….etc)

It’s important to tag exactly as I wrote above so that we may all follow each other’s journey!

Use any social media outlet that you’d like, I chose Instagram for my first challenge. Don’t worry if you can’t think of what you could possibly post each day, or if you miss a day. Stick with it as best as you can! Before you know it, you’ll be the most positive diabetic around!
