Tagline or Pick-Up Line?

Today's Prompt: Health tagline. Give yourself, your blog, your condition, or some aspect of your health a tagline. Make sure it’s catchy!

My husband asked me the other day why exactly people on the street don't seem to understand the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

"Is it just that type 2 is more prevalent?" he asked.

Yes, I told him. There are nearly 26 million people with diabetes in the US. And only about a million of us have type 1, I think.

With a grin, the next thing out of his mouth was, "Does that mean I've got myself one in a million?"


I laughed. While rolling my eyes. But I loved it.

One in a million. That should be the tagline for those of us with type 1 diabetes.

Though in digging on the interwebz, I see now that the estimate last year was more like I'm one of 3 million. Still...

I'm not going to argue with diabetes-themed romance. :)
