Hey, hey! It’s Diabetes Blog Week again. Last year I missed it, but I’m going to try my best this year.
“Lets kick things off this year by looking at the positive side of our lives with diabetes. What have you or your loved one accomplished, despite having diabetes, that you weren’t sure you could? Or what have you done that you’ve been particularly proud of? Or what good thing has diabetes brought into your life?”
This afternoon I went to the bike shop a few blocks away from my office for them to look at my handlebars. My hope is that the little bit of adjustment they did—along with the grippy paste they put where the handlebars meet the stem—will do the trick for a few more years.
In the repair section of the shop, they have a sign I love. It says, “If you’re here, you’re awesome.”
That’s pretty much how I feel about the diabetes online community: If you’re here, you’re awesome. And you’re the best thing about diabetes. I’ve met so many great people, had so many wonderful conversations, and generally just enjoyed myself in your company.
Tomorrow I’ll try to be a little less mushy.
