If you had told me 5 months ago .........

If you had told me 5 months ago I would be enjoying fried goat cheese over oven roasted beets for dinner I would have told you you're insane. If you had told me 5 months ago I would have had a productive meeting with a CDE where I did most of the educating I would have said you're nuts. If you had told me 5 months ago I would care about the Big Blue Test and enter results at every opportunity, I would have said what is the Big Blue Test ? If you had told me 5 months ago I would be getting the new Gen 4 Dex Com CGM, I would have asked what on earth is a CGM ? If you had said 5 months ago I would meet a bunch of other D's and not only learn from them, but be able to teach a few as well, I would have asked where ? Thanks TuD.

As the founder of TuDiabetes and the president of the Diabetes Hands Foundation (under which TuD lives), I am so happy to read your words!!

This validates our belief that nobody touched by diabetes should ever feel alone, because together we can generate positive change in ourselves and the community around us.

Could I bother you asking if you would mind sharing your thoughts in the form of a review on this site?

Thanks so much!!

Thanks Manny, I would be pleased to share my thoughts as soon as I gather them all together. At the moment I am busy getting folks to do the Big Blue Test but it will be next on my list of things to do. And did you know the "this week I will" campaign has a limit of only 3 weeks worth of "this week I will" do things, which I think kind of stinks.
