As you know from my blog, Diagnosed Not Defeated is the motto I created to help me get through managing diabetes. Dealing with diabetes can be taxing on the spirit, body, and mind. At times I may be exhausted, I may be overwhelmed, I may be emotional, or a host of other things, but I'm not defeated.

For many years now during the month of June, I set out to do something that I've never done before. The list of things are as small as eating caviar or walking across the Brooklyn Bridge or as wild as sandboarding or white-water rafting.

I'm encouraging you to JOIN ME THIS JUNE. Challenge your fear of heights, finally do a 5k, or just locate one thing on your Bucket List and cross it off. Pick something (legal) that you've never done before that expresses how you're not defeated by diabetes and tell me about it.

Upload your pictures, blogs, and/or summaries of what you do from June 1st- June 30th to show that you're Diagnosed Not Defeated

I can't wait to see what you do in June (I'll compile your photos for a blog post on July 1st)

If you're not diabetic, but are living with another chronic illness, feel free to post as well. :-)

Last year, I went INDOOR Skydiving
