A GREAT BLUE MONTH - WORLD DIABETIC DAY (WDD) 2014


Thanks to you, all around the world, helping increase the awareness of diabetes during the world diabetic day (WDD). I was in Stockholm to celebrate the day together with other diabetics. I also follow the world in Social media during the day and night and found a lot of great pictures from lots of places.
Swedish diabetic bloggers Diabetesia and Diabetesmannen together with me AnnaPS
Now I am going to share with you, my WDD in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden.

I visited Stockholm the day before and during the WDD. And that was great. The 13th of November it was an open diabetes event and I brought all AnnaPS garments to make it possible for visitors to try them on. It was popular and people really likes our tops and panties. I also demonstrate how to also carry hand units for both Omnipod and Frestyle Libre. Freestyle Libre (a FGM) is very hot in Sweden now, lots want it! You don´t have to stick your fingers!
All wants this! The new glucose meter Freestyle Libre- you don´t have to stick your fingers! Just scanning your bs.


It came almost 300 visitors and it use to be approx. 100. I am still dreaming on an extra big event in Stockholm during WDD so this was in the right way.

In Stockholm the Globe was shining blue all the day 14th of November, I like that.
 
The globe in Stockholm was shining Blue the WDD!
 In the evening lots of people came to the central of Stockholm (Sergels torg) and made a blue human ring. It was lot of people but I would love to see more and more. Lot of kids where there with their parents and to make them happy I worn a big Disney hat with blue lights. The kids like it.
In central of Stockholm we build a human blue ring.

 At this place also a "Blue Party" started and I meet up the great Swedish diabetic bloggers Diabetesmannen and Diabetesia who have planned the night. It was great to meat them in hot blue clothes. It was an open invitation to join and as always it is great to be among diabetics. Be there next time!
Diamyd is testing a vaccine that can stop diabetes!
On place we were invented to join a party in the company Diamyd locations and there I learned a lot about their incredibly exciting research finding a diabetes vaccine. To hear them telling me they probably have the vaccine that can stop diabetes is like coming to heaven. I will follow their studies and cross my fingers this is the right way.
During November I put effort to wear blue every day until WDD. It was fun and here you can see some of the blue days. I am already looking forward to next WDD and I am glad to meet you all during our "second birthday" as I heard a lot of diabetics saying during the WDD.

Meet you wherever you are!

Susann about Susann:

I am a determined young woman Susann "Sussu" Gleisner, born in 1987. I am an entrepreneur and running your own small business. I have many dreams and goals in life that I want to realize. I always have a thousand ideas in my head and I would particularly like to help others through my experiences and knowledge I have received in my life. I like to have many balls in the air. 
I am a mother, partner, entrepreneur, lecturer, author, writer, distributor, trainer in equestrian and racing riders. I live with two diseases around the clock that I have had since childhood, diabetes type 1 and celiac disease. It is within the two areas I work most and has many ideas I want to implement to improve the quality of life of others with illnesses. 

I'm living with Frederick as captain. We had the honor of January 2014 be happy and proud parents of a wonderful and much loved little girl, Vanessa. I love mom life and getting to spend the bulk of my time with her. 
We live in Socklot, a small village in Ostrobothnia, Finland. 
Right now, for the moment, we are building from scratch our very own dream farm. 

I am a person who has never seen my illness as an obstacle in my life, quite the opposite. Please follow me on my website which will be launched in October: 
www.susanngleisner.com 

Why I wrote the book? 
I got an idea - an idea that became real. 
A children's book about diabetes. 
I saw the need, I wrote a script and the 11/11/2013 came out, my book: 
"How so sick?" 
The first edition sold out quickly, now is the second edition out there. 

Info text of the book. 
When you are ill should probably be in bed, right? 
Martin's friend Minnie has diabetes, but she does not look sick at all, quite the contrary. Just to manage their disease, says Minnie, can live as normal as any other child. 
Susann Gleisner got yourself type 1 diabetes when she was a child. With the story of Minnie, she wants to show that life is by no means run out after a diabetes diagnosis.

The idea behind the book: 
⁃ When you fall ill as a child and is in the hospital, then you get loads of hospital information. Then I want to be able to read my book and see that it's not just dark and tough. One can live a normal life despite their illness. Both the child and the parents need to see it back then, so maybe, just maybe it will go a little easier. 
⁃ Kindergartens, schools should be able to read the book. Many children today have diabetes and do not have a child in the group, I want the children to have some knowledge of what diabetes is. 
⁃ Parents, siblings and grandparents can easily by reading the book have told of their illness. 
⁃ A diabetsbarn can tell by the book to their friends what their illness. 
⁃ Diabetes child can get a better view of their illness. 
⁃ disseminate the disease. 
⁃ 
I also go around and hold story time with my book for children. 
Tex to libraries, schools, churches and various events. 
I read to the children from the book, then we will discuss about the book, and diabetes. 
I also have my own diabetes material I show the children. 
These storytelling has been a great success.
This is the book


Swedish:
Recension av boken:

Berättelse. Martin är bekymrad och har svårt för att leka då han hela tiden tänker på sin kompis Mimmi som blivit
sjuk. Mamma säger att hon fått diabetes och frågorna är många för Martin. Ligger hon på sjukhus? Har hon ont?
Kommer hon att kunna leka igen? Då dyker kompisen Robert upp och de beslutar att åka hem till Mimmi och
kolla. Väl där möter de en glad och pigg Mimmi som är ute och leker med sin kanin Turbo, som hon gjort en
hinderbana till. Pojkarna berättar om sina undringar om Mimmis sjukdom och hon berättar för pojkarna hur det
är, hur hon mäter sitt blodsocker och hur hon tar sitt insulin. Pojkarna är storögda och imponerade och tycker att
Mimmi är modig. Äsch, tycker hon, "då ska ni träffa min nya kompis Walter som har en insulinpump". Så ger sig
gänget i väg till Walter som just håller på att bygga en koja åt sig högt uppe i ett träd. Han berättar hur det är att
leva med en insulinpump och hur han hanterar det. Allt det här berättas på ett lekfullt och inspirerande sätt, fullt
av upptåg och med glimten i ögat och mycket klokare blir man över hur det är för ett barn att leva med diabetes. I
slutet av boken kommer en allmän information om diabetes som slår hål på en hel del myter om sjukdomen.
Susann Gleisners Hur då sjuk? är en perfekt bok för dagis och skolor att läsa och samtala kring och lära sig om
vad diabetes innebär. Mysiga, glada och humoristiska akvarellteckningar av Margareta Sandin förhöjer både
värmen och glädjen i berättelsen.


Susann presenterar sig:

Jag är en målmedveten ung kvinna Susann ”Sussu” Gleisner, född 1987. Jag är en entreprenör och driver ett eget litet företag. Jag har har många drömmar och mål i livet som jag vill förverkliga. Jag har alltid tusen ideér i mitt huvud och jag vill framför allt hjälpa andra genom mina erfarenheter och kunskaper jag har fått i mitt liv. Jag gillar att ha många bollar i luften. 
Jag är mamma, sambo, företagare, föreläsare, författare, skribent, återförsäljare, tränare inom ridsport och tävlingsryttare. Jag lever med två sjukdomar dygnet runt som jag har haft sedan barnsben, DIABETES typ1 och CELIAKI. Det är inom de två områden jag jobbar mest och har många ideér jag vill förverkliga för att förbättra andras livskvalitét med sjukdomarna. 

Jag är sambo med Fredrik som är sjökapten. Vi fick äran att i januari 2014 bli lyckliga och stolta föräldrar till en helt underbar och högt älskad liten tjej, Vanessa. Jag älskar mammalivet och att få spendera den största delen av min tid med henne. 
Vi bor i Socklot, en liten by i Österbotten, Finland. 
Just nu för tillfället håller vi på att bygga upp från noll vår alldeles egna drömgård. 

Jag är en person som aldrig har sett mina sjukdomar som ett hinder i mitt liv, tvärtom. Följ mig gärna på min hemsida som lanseras i oktober:
www.susanngleisner.com

Varför jag skrev boken?
Jag fick en idé – en idé som blev verklig. 
En barnbok om diabetes. 
Jag såg behovet, jag skrev ett manus och den 11.11.2013 kom den ut, min bok: 
”Hur då sjuk?”
Den första upplagan sålde slut snabbt, nu finns den andra upplagan ute.

Infotext om boken. 
När man är sjuk ska man väl ligga till sängs, eller?
Martins kompis Mimmi har diabetes, men hon ser inte alls sjuk ut, tvärtom. Bara man sköter sin sjukdom, säger Mimmi, kan man leva som vanligt som alla andra barn.
Susann Gleisner fick själv diabetes typ 1 när hon var barn. Med berättelsen om Mimmi vill hon visa att livet ingalunda tar slut efter en diabetesdiagnos.

Iden bakom boken: 
När man insjuknar som barn och ligger på sjukhus, då får man massvis med sjukhusinformation. Då vill jag att man ska kunna läsa min bok och se att det är inte bara mörkt och jobbigt. Man kan leva ett normalt liv trots sin sjukdom. Både barnet och föräldrarna behöver se det redan då, så kanske, kanske det går lite lättare.
Daghem, skolor ska kunna läsa boken. Många barn idag har diabetes, och har inte ett barn i gruppen så vill jag att barnen ska ha lite kunskap om vad diabetes är. 
Föräldrar, syskon, mor- och farföräldrar kan på ett enkelt sätt genom att läsa boken få berättat om deras sjukdom. 
Ett diabetsbarn kan genom boken berätta åt sina vänner vad de har för sjukdom.
Diabetesbarnet kan få en bättre syn på sin sjukdom.
Sprida kunskap om sjukdomen. 

Jag åker även runtom och håller sagostunder med min bok för barn.  
Tex till bibliotek, skolor, församlingar och olika evenemang.
Jag läser för barnen ur boken, sen så diskuterar vi kring boken och diabetes. 
Jag har även med mitt egna diabetesmaterial som jag visar åt barnen. 
Dessa sagostunder har blivit en stor succé.
