Like these links: More of the DOC’s greatness.

It seems to me that I haven’t shared much of the Diabetes Online Community’s greatness with you lately. So let me try and rectify that. Here’s what I’ve been reading lately:
 
 
“That is where the silence comes in. When things are good, we have nothing to talk about. When things are bad, we are ashamed to talk about it. Why? Because the world is full of assholes.”
That’s from Brian at (Buzz, Buzz) Not my Cell. He’s talking about perspective, how the world could use a little more of it, and how sometimes, he recognizes his life is easier than others who have to contend with diabetes every day. I see a lot of truth in this:
Easier Said Than Done
 
 
Kate Cornell has an update on her experience as an insulin user. If you’re living with Type 2 Diabetes and thinking about talking to your doctor about insulin as part of your diabetes management, you just might want to hear what Kate has to say:
Insulin: An Update
 
 
Diabetes Dominator Daniele Hargenrader has a super diabetes life hack to share with you, and it’s a good one, especially if you use an Omnipod:
Diabetes Adulting Hack
 
 
This Diabetes Mine post about alcohol and diabetes is worth a look. It’s a good starting point if you’re looking for more information on mixing alcohol and insulin. And there are helpful links to additional resources included:
Yes, You Can: Safely Drink Alcohol with Diabetes
 
 
And Laddie Lindahl is about one year in on her experience with Medicare. Here, she talks about how it’s going. I’m taking notes from her Medicare posts so I have a roadmap for my own Medicare experience in about ten years:
One Year on Medicare: Advocacy Versus Acceptance
 
 
Renza used her 20th anniversary of living with diabetes to come up with a list of things she wishes she’d known when she was diagnosed. I don’t know if I could come up with twenty, let alone twenty seven:
Twenty things I wish I knew about diabetes
 
 
Finally, a reminder from Kelly Kunik via an experience at a local coffee shop. We could use a little more of this too:
Kindness Counts
 
 
One more thing… you may have noticed that my blogroll to the left has been updated. I took out the ones that are gone or where nothing has been posted in the past year. I also added a couple of new Blogs Worth Your Attention. If you have any others you’d like me to add, let me know. Thanks!
