Before I started blogging or getting involved in the D-OC (diabetes online community) - diabetes to me was just part of my persona - just like the gap in my front teeth (sorry orthodontists out there – I’m a Lauren Hutton wanna be). I didn't think much about the daily rituals that most of us diabetics go through until I started to "meet" up with others that shared similar experiences. This week proved why my online "friends" helps many of us cope with the roller coaster ride of diabetes.
The D-OC all grown up :)
I found this week that there are SOOOOOO many fantastic D-bloggers out there. Everyone has varied opinions on the subject that we were asked to blog about. I found it difficult following some of the topics that we asked to write about - despite the wild card options. With being sick and my desktop acting up on me - it made things abit tough at times (technology - that love/hate relationship - e.g. again today my desktop is acting up). For myself, it was almost like being at school, BUT in the end I accomplished the task at hand! I'm still trying to catch up with reading of the great posts done each day this week which were averaging about 100+ individual posts (Thursdays - topped the charts with almost 150 posts on "Ten Things I Hate Diabetes" – which for myself – was hard to write about – because I don’t really hate diabetes – it’s like my side partner in life).
Here's to all the great Super D-Troopers out there and hopefully more to come in the near future! To check out all the blogs posted this week head on over to the Bitter~Sweet website.
