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!!

I was not diabetic as a child, and don't have diabetic children. That said, your struggles are amazing and your dedication to your son is equally amazing.

Happy D-blog day! I am so glad you joined our community (though I'd rather you not have to deal with this disease!). You are an inspiration to me with all of you faith. It helps me out when my faith is lacking. My blog post for today is for you too! :)

Happy D-Blog Day.

I wish you all the best in life.

Happy (day late) D-Blog Day! LOL :) I ended up shutting the puter down early yesterday. You were the 2nd Blog-Mommy I ran across and your open and honest posts were exactly what I was feeling as a Mom (and still is)!

Hope you have a wonderful week :)

Sara said...
