Diabuddies a second take
This past week I read a blog that touched me. Often the blogs that are so compelling to me are found here on TUDiabetes. There is a reason for that. Aside from two efforts I seldom read other blogs. I write enough blogsI am afraid of copying something I have read (inadvertently of course) without providing proper attribution to the author. I figure if I do not read other blogs I cannot really copy someone else’s idea.
The difference with blogs on TUdiabets is that I have responsibilities here that require me to read bogs. So I have to admit to being amazed by how good our community blogs can be. This past week I read a terrific blog titled Diabuddies by Sumattox. Here is the link to the blog:
I hope if you have not read her work you will and give her a comment so we can encourage her writing. It is worth a close read
What struck me about the blog is a particular line about meeting diabetics in the wild. I can’t say I know many wild diabetics (that was not her point) but her phrasing stuck me as a little bit funny. The thought of wild diabetics made me chuckle. I have this imagine of diabetics climbing poles and rushing into large open spaces chanting odd slogans like: free me from my pump, or cut the disease not the tubing or maybe give us more flavor less carbs. I often think of some nutty stuff. Anyway back to the point. It is cool to meet diabetics I do not know. So I agree with Sumattox meeting diabetics (even wild ones) in the wild is great.…
