I think I've become young again - when I sign up for some of the projects I do with the D-OC (diabetes online community). To think, when I was in actual attendance at school - I HATED assignments. Now, these are fun!
So, what's the latest project going on you are asking? Well, You Can Do This is a growing community of videos, by folks that are affected by diabetes. Nope - you don't have to be a diabetic - but perhaps you care for someone with diabetes or know someone with it and want to say something! Don't be shy (I was in the beginning - I'm abit camera shy). The good thing is - if you aren't keen on doing a vlog - then you can write a blog - the instructions which are simple are all at Kim's website - Texting My Pancreas . Just remember though, prior to posting, as Kim states - " please share at your own risk - these videos divulge health information, and much like toothpaste from a tube, once it's out... it's out for good".
I personally went head first into my vlog - not really reading the instructions (did the same thing when starting on my pump) and it turned out alright despite being a very windy day and my still not feeling 100% from having viral pneumonia and some major depression that has made me into a Cave Woman (so unlike me as others in the D-OC have said). I'm coming around slowly but surely but due to bad stuff happening last November from what I considered good friends and nasty emails, along with family stuff, Manouchka my cat dying suddenly, things got out of hand and dragged me down.
Yuppers, d-E-p-R-e-S-s-I-o-N not diabetes related at all - though in the past it may have been - but my vlog reveals my cure for that - like cinnamon cures diabetes! I don't think my depression has ever been related to that - just life in general - I mean - we diabetics are normal human beings - we just happen to like to be human dart boards 24/7 along with other things we have to always be thinking of (will I go low in the night time and wake up alive?). Coming out in the open like this is difficult - as it may expose me to more emails (nasty) from this gang of so called "friends" - but I think this is part of my recovery - and understanding of what has caused this problem. So if you evil gals are reading this - and you know who you are - take that with your karma crap - 'cause I'm way better then you - and my D-OC gang will back me up on that !!!
