Today is day number twenty four.
Health Mascot. Give yourself, your condition, or your health focus, a mascot. Is it s real person? Fictional? Mythical being? Describe them. Bonus points if you provide a visual!
The Blue Circle
This is the symbol for diabetes. I'm wondering how many people still do not know that. And how I wish the blue circle was not proprietary to the International Diabetes Foundation, who controls it's usage. Cause if I controlled the symbol, this circle would be on EVERYTHING! Just like when you walk into a store, and cannot help banging into everything that is pink and has a breast cancer awareness ribbon on it - cup holder, license plates, tshirts, footwear, pens, notepads! I would make the blue circle everywhere..
So, sorry folks, no cheery mascot. We need awareness and the best way to do it is through a symbol.
