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.

Anne Cooper

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.
