My 100th post!

  Oh the journey…

I began this site less than a year ago 2 weeks after my twins were born.  I exclusively pumped breast milk for them every 3 hours for 4 months.  This resulted in several hours a day of just pumping.  The first few days I sat and stared at the clock on the wall.  This was not working out.  I thought I was going to pull my hair out and since the process was very painful for me due to the c-section and mastitis and nipple infections, I desperately needed a distraction.

I’d considered for some time beginning a blog but, as we often do, I procrastinated.  Now I was getting about 2-3 hours of sleep every 24 hours and I was in tons of pain and overwhelmed by two babies who ate every hour.  Yet, “now” was the time to start the blog.  And I had the time because I wrote only while pumping for my babies.  (It was a sight-me pumping in front of the computer and typing with one hand).

Now, there are thousands of visits per month.

 I can’t believe that what I produced through blood, sweat, and tears (quite literally all three) during the most challenging time of my life has become such an enjoyable way to communicate with fellow diabetics. 

You know, I love being a full time mother to my twins Henri and Aurora, but I’ve always been the type who needs something stimulating for the mind and this blog allows me to remain sane in the midst of diaper duty.

My biggest motivation for the blog is to share what I’ve learned the hard way.  I don’t want you to mess up the way I did and waste precious years of life. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you for reading what I post and for all of the emails and even for the handful of comments.  I know diabetes is a personal subject but, I encourage everyone to post more comments.  It is a great way to have dialogue with others about what you’ve read. 

And I promise I’ll be reading every word you have to say.

Thanks again!  Without you reading, I wouldn’t have the will to write.
