You say bragging, I say celebrating. Why not cheer our growing community?
We're here because we get something out of our online interactions. That may not help the millions of people with diabetes who are not here, but it certainly helps us. And there's nothing wrong with that.
Plus, how many of us have been moved to attend a support group, reach out to other people with diabetes, write our legislators about health care reform, donate to a diabetes charity, participate in research, or simply gather more data about our own blood sugars and improve them because we've joined tudiabetes?
I've had a 1.1 percent A1C drop since joining the site. Mostly due to my own hard work, of course. But certainly aided and supported by my online friends. Thanks, all! Sending party balloons and confetti your way.
