It came and it went and it was powerful and insightful again.
I write this blog for the purpose of sharing my life with diabetes. I write because I want you to know those moments, experiences, events and feelings associated with my life with diabetes. When you break it down and get a whole community to share it’s rawest thoughts and emotions you get a powerful response. You find people who didn’t know this community existed. You find people who have had similar experiences to you.
You find love. Friends. Support. Tears. Smiles.
My fellow community members’ wishes:
- I’m sure there are so many things I forgot. I’m sure I’ll remember some day when I’m too busy to tweet about it and have a community response. I’m sure people will glance at these statements and wonder why I posted them all here. I’m sure someone won’t understand. But I’m also sure someone will. I don’t know if it will be a family member or a friend or someone I don’t know who reads this space. Maybe it will be someone who thought they were the only one struggling. Maybe it will be a newly diagnosed person. Maybe it will be a parent who can see that their child is capable of anything with diabetes. I don’t know who you are or why you’re here or what you’re looking for. But I hope you found it on #IWishPeopleKnewThatDiabetes day.
