Wow, it’s still here! My blog – the one I used to be so faithful about writing posts!
Well – – –
Today’s topic: Why Am I Here?
Let’s kick off the week by talking about why we are here, in the diabetes blog space. What is the most important diabetes awareness message to you? Why is that message important for you, and what are you trying to accomplish by sharing it on your blog?
That’s too funny!
Simple answer – because Karen encouraged all of us to participate in this 7th Annual Blog Week. Just like she’s done for the past six years. She’s very encouraging!
Short answer – because I probably would be a very confused and angry and sick and lonely person with diabetes if I hadn’t found the d-blogs, and the d-bloggers, and the gazillion people who make up the DOC, Diabetes Online Community.
The most important message for me. I am not alone.
Which also means – You are not alone.
I need to share my not alone thoughts more often, so that some other d-newby, especially those of us with LADA who are being diagnosed when we are long past the juvenile ages, will find me and know that they’re not the only one.
A whole week of blogging? This will be good for me. This will get me back in the swing of blogging on a regular basis.
Um – let’s hope I do better at this than the treadmill.
