One of the things I'm learning through this whole bloggy experience is that it connects people on so many levels. I honestly thought this experience would put us all behind a computer screen with no real connection. But I'm definitely finding that's not the case. It's already led to a coffee meet up with a fellow tweeter. I love all my fellow bloggers, you guys are all my friends.
- Kerri's post on people who need people are people with diabetes really resonated with me. When I was first diagnosed, I perused the message boards of the ADA to get some emotional support and answers. Then I met Nerdy April at summer camp and she introduced me to the pump. And I've met so many other people (in real life and virtually) who have made me feel not alone in this diabetes world.
- Jacquie is a fellow beer lover and D-blogger who gives a bunch of shout outs to other D-bloggers who have inspired her (check me out at #9). I love that we all have one thing in common (diabetes) but we're all so different that we can be known by the beer lover, or the gamer, or the ninja, or the one who names her inanimate objects.
- Chris and I got into a metaphorical baseball-CGM challenge from my No Hitter post. He gave me a shout out on his next post on waiting for the other shoe to drop. By the way, I'm still waiting on my no-hitter, but I will definitely post when I do!
- Two fellow friends of mine closed on houses this week: April & Jessica! Congratulations, ladies! Welcome to the world of homeownership and "Hey, what's that smell?" syndrome.
- And I love Sarah's vlog post on using the Animas Ping meter to bolus. I also love her accent! A true, southern accent is a thing of beauty, and everyone should go listen to her beautiful voice and appreciate it.
