"The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shoreline of wonder."
For all of you who participated in #dsma on Wednesday night, I want to thank you for welcoming me with what felt like open arms, open minds and open hearts. The replies & RTs made me feel like I’ve been there before. I have to admit though, I’m not knowledgeable about insurance and insurance company policies, or how it can affect me. I just got my own insurance, but have not had to pay for my own prescriptions since I still have insulin and strips from the last time on my parent’s insurance. And the only thing I knew about clinical trials is that Rebel got denied for one this summer because her pancreas still makes C-peptide (or something).
And then last night I listened in on the blogtalkradio show, and that left me feeling even more astounded. There are so many smart, articulate people out there, and I’m glad that I have found you, but now where do I go? My brain was trying to process what it was hearing and reading, but there was no output in return. I asked questions, but I had nothing to give. It feels good. I know that there is more out there I need to learn about, and now I’ve got a reason to get started on it. These conversations have lit the fire under me.
