Today is Day 7 of the 2nd Annual Diabetes Blog Week. I have read a bunch of new blogs that I did not know were out there (they aren’t new, they were just new to me). I saw some faces and names from message boards that I knew but did not realize that they blogged.
About a month before the 2nd Annual Diabetes Blog Week, my friend Natalie mentioned the lack of Type 2 blogs. On Monday for the Admiring Our Differences post, Bob Pederson, Kerri Sparling and Scott Johnson also mentioned the limited number of Type 2 bloggers. I hope that is something that will change in the future. There is such a lack of understanding out there and people living with stuff do a much better job presenting the reality.
Since Karen published the list of topics before the week started, I knew that I would be writing about something that I learned this week. I had no doubt that I would learn some new things this week. What I was not expecting was to be writing about the strangest thing that I learned this week. Did you know that a worm has higher blood sugar in the winter in colder climates? Reyna of Beta Buddies took the time to look up information on a worm’s blood sugar. If you did not read Reyna’s post and want to know all about a worm’s blood sugar, I suggest you check it out here. The interesting thought for the day was what would happen to a worm if you used a lancet on it.
I saw several mothers saying that they found it hard to write something funny about diabetes for the Diabetes Bloopers post, but they still managed to find some bloopers to write about. I read some very heartfelt stories. I read a lot of funny stuff. People took some not so funny things and put a nice twist on it. The DOC has a lot of funny people and I had some really good laughs this week.
The DOC is just an awesome bunch of people, but I already knew that!
