Like these links: Spreading the DOC Love.

Is it just me, or are you cray-cray busy too?

We’ve got visitors this week (Maureen’s friend and fellow Type 1 Mary Beth and her family), and a few other commitments too. As a result, I haven’t had time to really write this week. It’s been even longer since I’ve felt like I’ve caught up on my D-blog reading.

I still haven’t fully caught up on that, and I’ve also realized that it’s been quite a while since I turned you on to some terrific insights from the fabulous Diabetes Online Community.

Also, I’d like to ask you for something new on these posts: Have you read something that moves you lately? How ‘bout you share that in a comment below so we can all get a look at it? Now… without further ado, here are some things for you to chew on this Wednesday:
 
 
The writer over at Running Without Sugar has a wonderful take on something she read in a T1D forum, what it says about us, and how important it is for us to keep trying and never give up:

Rhonda at FifteenWaitFifteen is getting closer to undergoing gastric sleeve surgery. This is a very brave thing she’s doing, and it’s something I’ve rarely read about, and I’m glad she’s documenting what she’s going through. Here are a few posts to help you get up to speed on her experiences:

Scott Strange has an interesting take on the idea of being cared for, then being the caregiver yourself, then being cared for again as we go through the stages of life with diabetes:

Have you been an insulin pumper for a while? If so, I think you’ll find some familiar themes in Vicki’s first-hand account of her first week with an insulin pump:

Finally, a feel-good story that involves biking, nature, and a memorable quote. Enjoy this from Moira McCarthy at Despite Diabetes:

Enjoy your hump day… hope the rest of your week is as pleasant as it gets. And don’t forget to leave a comment linking your latest favorites!
