One year ago today (with some serious encouragement from Kim and C), I both started this blog and joined Twitter. I never could have imagined how much my life would change.
I am in such a better place now. My emotional and mental health is better, and I'm doing my best to take care of my diabetes. I wasn't doing that before. All of this is thanks to you, Diabetes Online Community.
Thank you doesn't feel like enough.
You all have completely changed my life forever. There just aren't words to describe it. But that's the great thing--I know you understand exactly what I mean.
And I also want to thank my husband (I love you, babe!), my family, and non-DOC friends. Thank you for supporting me, for putting up with my being overly attached to my smartphone, and for not thinking I'm crazy. I love you, and thank you.
And that's about all I've got! For a blogger, I'm running out of words.
And now, a recap of the past year, because I can't think of anything else to say (meme borrowed from Kerri)...
The Best of Intentions...
"So, this is not how I pictured my first D blog post going..."
"Those of us in the DOC have been dealing with the recent loss of six PWDs (people with diabetes) around the world for the last few weeks..."
"I wasn't expecting to feel so emotional about all of this..."
"Once upon a time, there lived a girl who felt alone..."
"I could write a whole book on what I've learned from the DOC since I found you all in November..."
"So I finally did it..."
"There are so, so many things from Friends For Life I want to tell you about..."
"As I posted about last week, Saturday the 13th was my diaversary..."
"I dedicate this post to my friend George..."
"So there was too much going on in my brain to write another post about Simonpalooza, so I decided to vlog it..."
"So yesterday afternoon, I had my second appointment with my mental health professional..."
"So this post has nothing to do with diabetes, and yet everything to do with it..."
Thanks for reading, commenting, tweeting, and being your wonderful supportive selves. Thank you, DOC. I love you all! :)
