Welcome to #IWishPeopleKnewThatDiabetes Initiative website, a place where people (Yes, THIS MEANS YOU,) can share their thoughts and feelings about what they wish people knew about life with diabetes and go beyond the 140 character limit of the twitter hashtag, and in whatever media format they feel comfortable.

My name is Kelly Kunik and I’ve lived with type 1 diabetes for 38 years and I’ve been blogging about all things ‘diabetesalicious’ for the past 8 years, here and will continue to do so~

Back in April, 2015, I wrote this blog post, which turned into #IWishPeopleKnewThatDiabetes Day on Twitter.

The past few months I’ve reached out to a few Diabetes Online Community friends to submit posts on and this site was born!

It’s my hope that this website becomes a place where people living with diabetes can share their feelings in various mixed media formats to inspire and educate others in the process.

And a place where people sans diabetes can come away with a better understanding of what it’s like to live with diabetes.
