We talk a lot about the ups and downs of diabetes management. Of course, life is about ups and downs. Life is, after all,  “a roller coaster and you just got to ride it” as Ronan Keating once so wisely said. I like Annie Cooper. She says it how it is. Well, how it is for her. And that’s good enough for me.

I recently found an old blog she wrote about the highs and lows of being a patient. Having been a nurse, patient and social pioneer, I think she’s well positioned to open a discussion on how we can all play our part in improving our health service.

If you have a moment, give her blog a read. Or join the discussion on twitter.
