Happy Friday everyone… Hope your weekend is shaping up to be a good one, even if the weather still doesn’t look much like mid-March. Let’s hope that changes soon. I’ve got a bike ride to train for!

Today’s samples from the Diabetes Online Community are on a number of topics. If you haven’t seen them already, I hope you’ll take a look. You might learn something new, or come away with a different perspective.


First, some recaps of diabetes events:

From Christopher Snider at A Consequence of Hypoglycemia, a recap of the TCOYD conference in Sacramento last weekend:
From Jen at See Jen Dance, a recap of the same:

Both are great perspectives.


From Karen Graffeo at Bitter-Sweet, a recap of JDRF Government Day in Washington, and a heartfelt plea for more D-Advocates. We can never have enough.


After reading this, you’ll never look at flying with an insulin pump the same way again. Seriously. Here’s a great post from Melissa Lee at A Sweet Life that describes why sometimes we may have high BGs on airline flights, and why we may also experience “baggage claim lows” once we’ve touched down:


Bea at Cranky Pancreas is a fantastic Type 2 advocate who I really enjoy reading. She recently talked about her start of the Type 2 medication Victoza, side effects, and what it’s doing for her BGs:


When you meet someone new with diabetes, the conversation doesn’t happen the same way every time. Check out these interesting encounters:

From Alecia at SurfaceFine

From Sara at Moments of Wonderful

From Scott at Rolling in the D


Finally, ‘cause it’s Friday, you need to read this post (if you haven’t already) from Kelly K. at Diabetesaliciousness, who goes all third person when she describes reconnecting with her first diabetes friend 30-some years after diagnosis. This will give you that warm, mushy feeling you may be seeking on a gray day:


Okay… work needs me. And I need to work. Hope today is the start of a fabulous weekend. Enjoy!
