Today’s blog prompt: Admiring our differences.
I am participating in the Second Annual Dblog Week started last year by Karen of the Bittersweet blog. Thank you Karen ! Hopefully, I will be good, and write all week long, unlike my poor attempt at Wego Health’s month long prompt! Yikes!
When I think of all of the different people who blog about diabetes I can’t just pick one person or one group of whom I admire. I admire you all in so many different ways because we are all the same and different.
I first started blogging in 2005 and I felt different, sad and alone. But, I slowly learned there were many struggling with the same insecurities and problems as me, and they supported me. Turns out that they needed me too!!
These people helped me with the hardest times in my life and continue to do so. They consist of parents of children with diabetes, kids, type 1’s, type 2’s, LADA’s, grandparents and spouses. They are people who fight for cures, advocate, have strong opinions, make me laugh, think and cry. I love them like family and wouldn’t trade them in for anything. I am eternally grateful for knowing and admiring every single one of you.
So, I will continue to stand by you side by side and fight with you till we see a cure.
