I've been abit behind in many things #diabetes these past few months, while I deal with other health disorders that are making my usual control of diabetes go out of balance (e.g. today was surgery pre op day - what an interesting experience that was ... again ... #dblog in the making when I can find some time to put my thoughts together).
I am excited to at least post this little ditty though before the day is over, about tomorrow's upcoming event for World Diabetes Day, that I'm hoping I can at least attend for a few "sessions".
The World Diabetes Day twitter chat will begin at 12 am ET on Friday, November 14th and end at 11:59 pm EST that evening.
To find out more details (e.g. a link to help those of you in different time zones - so you don't miss out on your fav #diabetes celebrity/etc.) then go directly to the DCAF (Diabetes Community Advocacy Foundation) website at this link .
Also, if you are new to Twitter, and find it a challenge like I do at times for this type of fast paced reading/posting - go to TweetChat (remove the automatic Diabetes1.org frame by clicking on the "Remove the Frame" on the left hand side of your screen) then once you are seeing the "clean" page - simply type in #WDDChat14 in the search window to gain access to the chat session on one page with no fancy ads, etc. I find it much easier to keep up with the streaming (oh I sound so "with it in cyber world don't I?). See ya can teach an old cat new tricks \\^,,^// *** See update at bottom :) ***
Now, if my above suggestions doesn't quite suit your style - then check out other options to join in on the discussion at this link.
Hope to "see" you there at some pooint during the day !!!
NB: Update to accesssing the chat sessions without pulling out your hair. I'm not on a mobile so perhaps that is reason for above not working for me (I use my lap top for these types of discussions). What I am finding works best for keeping up with the fast paced discussion is the following ... .... so far I don't seem to be missing out on posts, and my ability to put in my "two cents worth" is going through. Many thanks to Brenda Bell for this tip
