Acrostic (HAWMC Day 1)

So I just signed-up to participate in WEGO Health Blog Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge Prompts!  Yikes!  This means I will be blogging every day for a whole month!  Double yikes!

I apologize in advance if you get my blogs through email, because it means you will likely be inundated.  Sorry.  Also, I usually put links to all my posts on Juvenation and TuDiabetes.  I'll still link to some of the posts, but not all of them (seems like that would be a bit much).  So stay tuned to the blog daily to see what the prompt is!

I am excited about the challenge, and I hope I can do this!

Today's prompt is to write an acrostic about your condition.  Despite being a teacher, I've not written an acrostic poem in a long time.  So here goes...

Diabetes does not define me
I will not let it
As it is a part of me
But it is not the sum of who I am
Every day brings new challenges
The high blood sugars, the low blood sugars, and
Everything in between
Still, I have diabetes.  It does not have me.


  1. Love this! And I'm very much happy that you're doing the HAWMC with me and others from the DOC. It's a big deal, committing to 30 days and 30 blog posts, prompted or otherwise. Here's to 30 days of stalking each others' blogs! =)

  2. too, like Colleen on the all 30. You rocked this girl. It does not define you at all. It explains a bit on who you are.

  3. I love love love this! You are awesome! I will not let it define me either !!

  4. This is FANTASTIC, Jess! Way to start out strong. Can't wait to see what's next!

  5. I found you from the We Cara Lot Blog. Great job on the poem. I love the last line: "Still, I have diabetes. It does not have me."
