Hello from Baltimore

Welcome to another blog from a type 1 diabetic.  I’m not sure I’m doing the right thing in starting this blog, but after posting comments on several sites in the last few months, I started feeling strange about remaining an anonymous face in the crowd.  So here I am!

My goals are modest.  My rules are few:

1. Don’t expect to be read.  Don’t expect to get comments.  I’m doing this to keep a written record of my life, not to be a web star.  Stay humble.  Rinse.  Repeat.

2. Where I can, be an advocate for others.  Not a necessity as a blogger, but I need to remember that it’s not always about me.  And there are always people who need help more than I do.

3. Enjoy

I’m starting this on my 50th birthday!  Not only that, but my closest living relative, my nephew, became a father today!  Let’s celebrate all of our milestones.  It’s great that we’ve all gotten this far.  And we’ve all got a lot more to give.  Let’s try to keep the proper balance between the highs and lows in our lives.  Let’s keep searching for, and when we find it, keep living in, the happy medium.

    Nice to see you sharing your story, Stephen! Happy belated birthday. 🙂 (And thanks for your frequent comments, as of late. I am horrible at keeping up, but I’ll try to check in now and again!)

      Hey, thanks for the comment! I didn’t think I would be seeing anything for quite a while. I’m just getting started, still on the WordPress learning curve. Don’t be surprised if it changes a bit in the coming months. I so appreciate your comment!
