Just wanted to share my latest blog entry about the importance of communities for those living with diabetes.
Diabetes is miss understood, even by medical professionals, I have a diatician who keeps saying that I am in insulin, when I am on Byetta.
Love the blog post! After doing this “on my own” for 13 years… I can’t believe I found everyone at TuDiabetes! Where have I been? Goodness!
The more I learn, the more I discover I do not know. it is “The Know It Alls” that scare me.
Before the invention of computers I knew what it was like to be alone. How happy I am to be a part of a Diabetes community…all hail technology!!!
Your blog post reminds me of my first summer at diabetes summer camp, back in 1981 at the innocent age of seven. A bunch of us campers were marching proudly across the grounds, chanting “We’ve got diabetes, and we’re not sharing!”
Although, unfortunately I have to say that I kind of am going a this alone. Sure I have plenty of support of my non-diabetic family, and there’s my doctor and his team, but no real-life (not online) friends who are going through the same thing as me. Well, I suppose this is a start.
