I'm so excited about this show. Because my topic hits home with me. Dibetes I live with it on a daily basics. I can't stop taking my insulin and I must go to my Diabetes Dr. Every three months; why? I want to live and live a life of freedom. I don't want to loose my eyesight because I am not taking my insulin; I don't want to loose my limbs because I am not taking care of myself as instructed by my physician

My speical for these special show is Queen of Queens Lifetime2 Jackie Walters; Diabetes Awareness is her platform and so also takes this illness serious. She has lost love ones and she is the voice for those who need to be heard.
Christel Marchand Aprigliano was diagnosed in 1983 with Type 1 diabetes and spent her early years wishing it would simply "go away." She now devotes her efforts to many diabetes advocacy and peer support initiatives as the CEO of The Diabetes Collective, Inc., which produces The DiabetesUnConference; a member of Florida's Diabetes Advisory Council; VP of Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition (DPAC), a non-profit dedicated to amplifying the diabetes voice on federal and state policies, and a consultant for healthcare companies. You can find her thoughts on life with diabetes on her popular personal blog, www.theperfectd.com.
Christopher Snider joins Bennet and myself to discuss My Diabetes Secret, a forum he created on Tumbler, inspired by this post from Kerri Sparling on her blog, Six Until Me.
My Diabetes Secret, and the other communities like it, provide a safe space for people to share anonymously their thoughts and feelings about their disease without the fear of personal judgement. The hope is that openly sharing can serve as a step in healing.
Please share about Chris' platform and bring awareness to this powerful tool that has the potential to help so many. The reach includes, but extends far beyond diabetes.
You can visit the My Disease Secret hub for all the communities Chris has created, including:
My Arthritis Secret
My Chronic Pain Secret
My Cystic Fibrosis Secret
My Diabetes Secret
My IBD Secret
My Mental Health Secret
My Multiple Sclerosis Secret
My Lupus Secret

Tonight we’re turning up the volume on our ‘GLAM MORE, FEAR LESS’ philosophy and talking about ‘SEXY SHOES YOU CAN DANCE IN’ with musical inspiration from Tamar Braxton.
Find a great looking pair of shoes that don’t hurt your feet can be a challenge especially if you’re living with diabetes.
Although Tamar Braxton faced this challenge each week when she famously competed on ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ she’s probably still best known for being the brash talking, younger sister on the ‘Braxton’s Family Values’ TV Show. Tamar says, “Family’s can go through ups and downs. Who’s right or wrong but at the end of the day I love them and wouldn’t trade them for the world.”
Did you know Tamar’s husband Vince recovered from a pulmonary embolism he suffered in November 2011? Since her husband’s sickness, Tamar Braxton has continued to spread the good word of health to her entire family. From her firstborn to her sisters, she’s creating opportunities for herself and everyone else to stay healthy as well.
Vibe Magazine’s Diamond Hillyer reviewed Tamar’s “Calling All Lovers” album and said, “She meticulously strings the highs, lows and every in-between of love, sex and relationships."
Guests include Poet Lorraine Brooks, the Charlie’s Angels of Outreach, Dr. Monique Renee Rolle, Samantha Shaken, Catherine Schuller AICI, CIP and Mama Rose Marie. Prize giveaways courtesy of Earth Brand Shoes, Dr. Greenfield’s Diabetic Foot Creams, Cabot Cheese and Nu Naturals.
Throughout the podcast we will be playing songs from“Calling All Lovers” courtesy of SONY MUSIC. This podcast proudly supports the Spare A Rose campaign.
