Traveling with Diabetes
November 27, 2013 – 3:18 pm | No Comment

I’ve travelled several times each month this year and it’s given me some lessons:
I’ve learned that I get motion sickness on planes and cannot travel without taking Dramamine.  I tried to forego it once and …

Diabetes Blog Week 2012! Find a Friend

Submitted by on May 14, 2012 – 9:09 amOne Comment

It’s Diabetes Blog Week and here is the prompt for today:

“Click for the Find A Friend – Monday 5/14 Link List.
It seems the most popular thing about Diabetes Blog Week is that it helps us find blogs we weren’t reading yet and connect with some new blog friends.  With that in mind, let’s kick off Diabetes Blog Week by making some new connections.  Think about the d-blogs you read that you think we may not know about and introduce us to one that you love!!  Let’s all find a new friend today!    (Special thanks to Gina, everybody’s Diabetes BFF, for helping me title this post!)”

I think most people know about Riva Greenberg and her posts on her website Diabetes Stories and the Huffington Post but in case you haven’t had the pleasure of reading her posts, I’m telling you to check one out today!  Her posts are very intelligent and advocacy centered and I always take away some very useful nugget of information.

Everyone has their style of diabetes blog that they like to read.  I prefer diabetes blogs that aren’t so much therapeutic as they are sharing of information or inspiration that can be useful to me.

My exercise and hardcore athletics blogger friend is Chris Scully at CanadianDGal.  She has helped me so much with keeping up my exercise routine and pushing it further (and I love her dry humor).  I find that I keep up my exercise as long as I read her posts because I think that “surely I can take a walk, Chris runs marathons!”

I also have a really sweet blogger friend, Melissa who blogs at In the Short Rows who has a backyard farm and shares much of what she and her husband are doing there while tying it into her life with diabetes.  I totally love to hear about how she cooks their home grown food, takes care of chickens and bees, and balances that life with managing diabetes.

Edibles…(The Diabetic Edition) by Nathan is my new favorite blog.  He writes about his diabetes management in a way that causes me to question, learn, and think about my diabetes management.  Blogs like this one yield tangible results in my diabetes management and that is priceless!

I love reading about fellow diabetics who live differently from me and have talents that I don’t have.  It makes me feel awe about the world we live in.  It reminds me how there are a million ways to do the same thing and that our differences are fun and exciting and a great way to learn new things.

    Thanks, Sysy! I enjoy d-blogs for the same reasons you do, so your recommendations are really helpful for me as well.
