Waiting With Diabetes

If you follow me on Twitter you are probably familiar with my tweeted pictures of all the waiting rooms I sit in. Typically the text says "waiting" and attached will be a picture I took with my phone of the waiting room.

At the lab, my endo, or even Dr. F-bomb I always try and snap a picture of the waiting room for whatever reason. 

Well yesterday morning I was happy to see a picture from my friend Sara Knicks of her endo's waiting room. When I saw it I started cracking up but then I thought, "we spend a lot of time at the doctors, I wish other people would post pictures too."

A few tweets back and forth and the plan was set. 

A Flickr group called Waiting With Diabetes has been created and we are asking PWD's to post pictures of their doctors waiting rooms for any diabetes related visit. 

The URL is http://www.flickr.com/groups/waitingwithdiabetes/

Here's the real description...

As diabetics we spend a lot of time at the doctors. For the next year, let's all take a picture of our waiting rooms every time we have a diabetes related appointment.So take a picture (at your own risk), post the date, and whatever else you want to share about the picture and let's see just how much time is spent Waiting With Diabetes.

So that's it! After you sign in and pay your copayment, but before you open that magazine, snap a picture of chairs, the table, or whatever. Just make sure you don't get caught. And also try not to get people in the picture too. Most people don't like strangers taking pictures of them. 

I hope you join in the fun!

Haha! "Most people don't like strangers taking pictures of them." I would say that is especially true at the doctor! :)

This is going to be so much fun!
