Ensure that the media state type 1 or type 2 when making reports about Diabetes

and so it begins....

If you share my views in how the media report DIABETES the please click and sign the petition..... i want to make this clear.... this is not a fight against type 1 and type 2 diabetes, .... i just want the facts to be true when reporting on this awful disease.... if they are reporting that having a gastric band can cure DIABETES then i want them to say TYPE 2 DIABETES.... if its about pump and insulin therapy then i want them to say TYPE 1 DIABETES....

i also know that there are other types.... L.A.D.A , gestational .... but its media reporting on TYPE 1 and TYPE 2 that i want to challenge.....

please pass the link on to as many people as you know,,,,, YOU are the only way this will work.. otherwise its just another Lee failed mission.....

thanks for looking.....

diabetes..... type 1 or type 2......

let me start by saying i do NOT want to start a war between type 1 diabetics and type 2..... they are both nasty horrible diseases to deal with.... but.... they are different..... and i just want there to be a distinction in the media when it is talked about or reported in the news.... are you mixed race.... white... black..... the list goes on ..... but to me there is a difference.... and the same way you should think about what you say before you say it .... should be the same with me.... i am type 1 ... i am on a pump... and i cant help it..... or i am type 2 i am on tablets and i am dealing with it... i know my wording is not the best in the world.... but i do think it is important....

so if i am rich and i can stop the press from talking about my bad ways by super injunctions in the media....

then why cant we do the same and make them talk about us in the way we want........
