D-Blogger Day


This is my first D-Blogger Day post. I joined the Diabetes OC in January 2008, after Googling 'type 1 diabetes blogs' and finding Six Until Me, Diabetes Mine and Tu Diabetes. As my first year of blogging comes to a close I think of how different the world is for me now. How many new friends I've met, how many helpful diabetes management tips I've learned, how many common problems we all share. But mostly, I think about the long years I've spent alone with this disease, never really knowing any other diabetics. I always felt like an alien trying to be human, a machine. It is overwhelming, uplifting, amazing, wonderful and beautiful, and so much more, knowing that there is such a special community online.

So thank you all for putting virtual pen to paper and writing about your lives. It makes me feel like someone truly, finally understands. In this month of giving thanks, I am grateful for all of you.
