I haven't been participating in the D-Blog Week until today. Today I read Jane K's blog, in which she wrote: "As D-blog Week comes to a close I think the people who have done important things to create an interactive community for people with diabetes are heroes". That statement inspired me to say that Manny Hernandez is my hero.
There have been three landmarks in my Diabetes: 1) diagnosis in November, 1993, 2) the day that insulin therapy began, and 3) finding TuDiabetes. Manny was responsible for the third. More than once I have referred to TuDiabetes as my lifeline. Here I found the continuing information and education that I need, and friends who brighten my life.
Of course there are many other heroes on this site as well, including all the hardworking folks who keep the site so useful and so much fun. I can't name them all, but I appreciate them all. Thanks!
