“You can do this.”
If you have any medical condition, you’ve probably heard these words a thousand times. But they’ve never been spoken quite as loudly as they are now, thanks to a brand new project created by Kim Vlasnik.
The You Can Do This project is a collection of video testimonials by people who have diabetes, for people who have diabetes. The videos are meant to encourage communication between people in the diabetic online community and remind them that they are not alone, that they are all in this fight together, and that they CAN do this.
“Everyone with diabetes struggles at one time or another,” Kim writes in her blog. “Validation and community have the ability to lighten the emotional load that diabetes can place on us.”
