Dear Stranger,

Picture of a generic diabetes alert bracelet like the one by my bed right now.

I have diabetes.

If you see me with a needle, give me the benefit of the benefit of the doubt- I didn't choose a need for needles.

If you see me acting drunk or passed out, give me the benefit of the doubt- I'm probably not drunk and I'd like you to try to talk to me. If I don't respond, call an ambulance.

If you see me eating, give me the benefit of the doubt- I can eat that.

If you have diabetes too, give me the benefit of the doubt- come up and talk to me.

Thanks,
Jonah
