It's d-blog day

Back when I started blogging in Sept 2005 it was out of a sense of desperation. Was there anyone else out there who knew what I was going through? All the reading I had done on type 1 talked about blood glucose levels that behaved correctly as long as you counted carbs properly, exercised, and found your "patterns".

What a relief it was to discover the non-textbook reality: people whose BG refused to fall into predictable patterns, people to remind me that 2+2 almost never equals 4 in the world of diabetes, people who said the same things I wanted to say, only much more eloquently.

A big part of the reason I don't blog as often is that I am no longer so frustrated with this disease. And that is because of the comments, support, and writing of all of the other d-bloggers out there. Thank you all, and happy D-blog day!

"The non-text book reality." EXACTLY! That is totally it.

Happy D-Blog day, and thanks for every experience you've shared with us all. :)

(I guess - I mean it would be happier if we didn't celebrate it.)

Hi Val

Sorry for being late to the party. Happy D-blog day. It's a lot easier living with this disease thanks to all the information/support out there on the blogosphere.

Have a great Thanksgiving.
