Happy D-Blog Day!!.....
I'll use this post and this day to celebrate blogging. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you to all the D-Bloggers out there. I've read so many blogs....I've lost track. The blogging community has been a large part of my moral support the past 11 months and I can't thank God enough for this avenue of communication.
As I read other parents dealing with this disease it reminds me I'm not alone in my battles. As I read about type 1'ers living as adults with this disease it reminds me that my son does have a future. I can't express enough gratitude for the D-bloggers out there sharing their hearts and lives with the world.....they've greatly encouraged me in my battle to keep my son healthy.
I originally started blogging to inform. Let friends and family know how we were doing. Then it became a way to vent......diabetes is a frustrating disease if you haven't figured that out yet! Then it became my therapy. Writing helps me hammer out my thoughts and emotions. Blogging has been a part of my sanity. Now, I see this blog as encompassing all of these.....a way to inform, a way to vent, and therapy for my sanity.
Sometimes I wonder if it's good to be so open and honest in my posts. I'm definitely open for more attack. But it's where I'm at. It's life, it's living. I believe it's this honesty that helps spread the word about diabetes. Makes it seem like a "real" disease....a tough disease. I know I'm thankful when I read other parents open, honest and raw posts.....I can instantly relate. So I'll continue to be that way here....there's a parent out there going through the same turmoil I am and he/she needs to know they're not alone!
I'll end with special thanks to all the blogs, uh... bloggers I keep up with as much as possible.......... Cara, Donna (where are you? I miss you!), Scott, Kerri, Katie, Jill, Bernard, Sara, Penny .....and so many more.....impossible to list (seriously my right-click fingers were getting cramped trying to hyperlink all the names!!!)
So there you have my post for D-Blogger's Day!!
