Being your own advocate.....

Living with diabetes takes a lot of work and a lot of "tools".  Sometimes we have to fight for the things we need in order to live healthy lives with diabetes.  When we do this, we are being our own advocates.

So what have you had to fight, or advocate, for in your diabetes life?  Can you share tips and advice on how you got the things you needed?  Who were you advocating to?  Let's all pool our experiences so we can help each other!
