I am not a writer. I’ve been wanting to start a diabetes blog for a long time but am a little daunted by the fact that I will have to actually write blog posts! But what the heck, I’m throwing myself in (somewhat strategically just after the 5th annual dblog week – maybe by this time next year I’ll actually have to courage to participate!).
That said, ever since my diagnosis with diabetes and even more so after the CD diagnosis, I have always made an effort to connect with other people who live with these conditions, online and in person. Over the past year or two I’ve gotten more actively involved in the diabetes online community (#DOC) and despite my own reservations, starting a blog seems like the logical extension of my interactions on twitter, on forums and through comments on other D-blogs.
I already know from experience that sharing stories can help both the storyteller and the “reader”. I hope that in sharing my story of living with diabetes and celiac, I can connect with others who have similar experiences, who are looking for encouragement about living well with either one of these conditions, and who can inspire me to do the same.
