Spread the Love – #DBlog Week, Day 7


Diabetes Blog Week

As another Diabetes Blog Week draws to a close, let’s reflect on some of the great bloggers we’ve found this week. Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved during Diabetes Blog Week, and tell us why they’re worth reading. Or share three blogs you’ve found this week that are new to you. (Thanks to Pearlsa ofA Girl’s Reflections for inspiring this topic.)

I’m going to tweak the prompt just a little bit and choose a blog post for each of the first six days. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to read every single post for every single topic, so I guarantee you there are many, many others that I’m not listing that are well worth your read. So check out the topics and explore some other fabulous blogs! (Click the topics below for a link of all of the posts written that day.) And thank you to Karen at BitterweetDiabetes.com for organizing this – I can’t wait until next year!

Day 1: Share & Don’t Share
This post from Michelle at MichelleBrooksInk.Blogspot.com is one of the first that caught my eye this week. Check it out, and send some love to a new d-mom! Michelle, thank you for sharing your story!

Day 2: We, The Undersigned
This post at 1type1 made me tear up – she expresses such love for her sister, and I totally understand that (even though my sister does go what I go through on a daily basis).

Day 3: Memories
I like this post by Bigfoot 🙂 at BigfootChildHaveDiabetes.com because it made me laugh and it made me cry. It’s the first post I think I’ve read of hers and OMG I’m hooked. She is absolutely hilarious (and they are badass d-parents!)

Day 4: Accomplishments Big & Small
This is a great post from Christel at ThePerfectD.com. “I have never given up on myself,” she says. I think we can all relate to that.

Day 5: Freaky Friday
This topic really didn’t sit well with me. But I do like this post by Angie at Organised Chaos- as it comes from someone who faces two auto-immune illnesses, and explains which she’d like to get rid of. Plus, I’ve never heard of the second disease, so I learned a little something.

Day 6: Diabetes Art
I like this post and Reva’s art – flashy!! I’m also going to try putting my site up that high on my stomach – I think I’m building up scar tissue lower down. Thank you for the idea, Reva!

  1. Your blog is awesome! Some of the stuff you quote Bubs saying really reminds me of being a kid with diabetes. You’ve also inspired me to brush up on some baking skills and reinstate my low-carb diet.
