A quick tip o’ my hat to the much appreciated support I found via twitter today. Just another example of how supportive the diabetes online community is, and why I encourage everyone to get involved as it fits your life.

Responses from people I’ve met only once, some I’ve never met before, and some from completely across the world. It warms my heart and pushes me forward. It’s been a tough couple of weeks and it means more than anything to have people who know what it feels like to be cheering me on.

Sidenote: I’m OK! I know my tweet sounds sad, but.. when it rains it pours, and sometimes I just get tired of jumping in puddles! I’m sure I’ll be elaborating on some of the insurance debacles and blood sugar rollercoasters I’ve been dealing with soon.

  1. Yes, the DOC love is very awesome. And I’m sorry you’re having a hard time. But you are such a warm, bubbly person and I can totally see you playing in the puddles! LOL
