I thought I would share with everyone that I have taken the plunge and started a diabetes blog!

Its focus is actually living as someone with T1 diabetes and a visual impairment. It's called Blood Drops & Braille Dots.

Feel free to check it out and follow (or whatever the equivalent blog term is!). I have a few future posts started, but if you have any topics you would like me to blog about, I am open to any ideas or suggestions.

Hi Jen,

Your work is very well written. I likes that it was written is such a way to explain your life situation without doing into gory details that becomes boring and repetitious. Keep it up; I'll be looking forward to chapter 2.

I made an entry into my LiveJournal last evening. I realized that I hadn't written in it for two years. Crazy.

Be well.
