Not alone

9 11 2007

I am so glad that I found the Diabetes OC. For a long time, I was the only Type 1 diabetic around. When things are going rough (or great!), there wasn’t really anyone who I could relate to.

I had initially started my general blog, Yellow Wood, to cover various things like knitting, baking, diabetes, and general news/opinions. Then slowly, I found other D-bloggers: Kerri, Amy, Bernard, and Wil.

I ended up writing so much about diabetes, that I split the diabetes section off into the blog you see today, Plastic Pancreas. I have since found many other D-bloggers. They can be found in my Blogroll, in my Google Reader, and on Diabetes Daily. I check them all.

It is so great to ask each other for advice, empathize with others’ struggles, rejoice in others’ triumphs, and share the language of diabetes. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of friends.

Well said.

It’s been amazing to see this community grow from a handful of people reaching out to several hundred bloggers, and countless folks reading and commenting… amazing!

Happy D-Blog Day!

I frequently read your blog through my blog reader but I don’t think I have ever commented. Today seemed like a good day to start!
