How long has it been since I’ve posted something about what others are writing throughout the Diabetes Online Community? It’s actually been about six months.

There is certainly a lot going on in our part of the world wide web, and I hope to share some of it here. If you’ve read something particularly noteworthy, and it’s not mentioned here, please leave the link in a comment so the rest of us can enjoy reading it too. Thanks!

Now, for the latest…
There are a number of blog posts out there from people who attended the Diabetes UnConference or Diabetes Sisters Weekend for Women gatherings. Check these out:

Back in September, Laddie Lindahl at Test, Guess, and Go wrote about her experience using the Tandem t:slim pump and the Dexcom G5 continuous glucose monitor. Since our pump choices have been shrinking over the past two years, I think this is something you might want to bookmark if you’re on Dexcom and you’re going to be considering a new pump in the near future.

Find out why Laddie says: It Takes Flexibility


Sarah at Coffee and Insulin is one of my favorite writers. She understandably looks at things from a millennial point of view, and I view it through the eyes of a late baby boomer. But when I read her blog, I usually learn something, either about diabetes, or about myself. And I’m moved.

Here’s why Sarah sometimes sees managing diabetes like a heavy stone


Rachel Foster is another Writer I Like. She posted recently at, talking about useful strategies that help her get through the change of seasons. Some of these are really good, regardless of the type of diabetes in your life.

Seasonal Blues and Type 2 Diabetes: Fighting the Cycle


Finally… you know how much of a fan I am about athletes who crush their athletic goals while living with diabetes:

Abby Burch over at Photograbetic just finished her first 10K run
You know, I miss doing these. Our community is still full of amazing writers, determined advocates, and people I want to get to know better. I hope you enjoy getting to know these people too. Happy Tuesday!
