Since discovering the #DOC back in 2008 (my first #dblog was at Diabetes1.org) when I was trying to figure out how to use an insulin pump after 41 years of being a human dart board … life has changed so much for the better.
Before that time, I didn’t know many diabetics that I could chat with, especially on insulin pumps, In order to get the answers I needed for my burning questions on how to use the pump, I went to various online groups based in America such as Tudiabetes.org, Insulinpumpers.org .
It was amazing how much help I got from these various sites, and despite not being in person with everyone, I no longer felt alone dealing with this roller coaster ride. It was like a breath of fresh air (ahhh - the smell of a hunky hairy chested dude bathing in Irish Spring!!! PG13)
Spring forward (and we have changed our clocks) … and we come to the weekend of March 13th, 2015 … Sin City … land of make believe and OMG … 90 diabetics all grouped together at the 1st Diabetes unConference!!! Combined together - we little guinea pigs running on the big blue wheel - calculated that we have almost …
2,000 years of the roller coaster ride of diabetes!!!!
