Friday Reminders.

A couple of quick Friday updates before I go back and park myself in front of the nearest space heater:

The FDA Office of Minority Health Will Host a Webinar About Commenting to a Docket. Want to learn more about adding your voice to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration docket concerning your health (HELLO, Advocacy)? Efforts from the Diabetes Online Community to add the voice of the patient to FDA considerations has been extremely helpful and is absolutely necessary. Find out how to do it, and why it’s important for you to add your voice, during a webinar hosted by the FDA’s Office of Minority Health on March 25 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern time.

For more information, and to register for the webinar, CLICK HERE
#DBlogCheck Day is back this Tuesday! Spearheaded by Christopher Snider of A Consequence of Hypoglycemia and the Just Talking Podcast, D-Blog Check-in Day is a day when we spend time commenting on every blog, Twitter feed, Instagram member, and so on that we see, even if we just say “check”. As Chris says, it’s not about page views; it’s about saying I’m here and I support you. It’s about continuing to build community.

CLICK HERE to find out more, and don’t forget to link your posts there on Tuesday.

Be sure to check in, leave a comment, and boost the spirit of someone bravely telling their story.
Finally… If you live in the USA, don’t forget to move your clocks ahead one hour this weekend. That also means please remember to update the time on your diabetes devices. I know I’m getting older, because this “Spring Forward” event seems to happen earlier every year.

If only Spring would come along with the change…

Happy #BlueFridays to you.

Happy Blue Friday!!!


Okay, I totally stole this idea from Alecia over at SurfaceFine, who posted a photo of her blue boots.

It’s Friday, and for me and for everyone living with diabetes, I’m wearing blue today. Back in 2010, Cherise Shockley of Diabetes Community Advocacy Foundation and DSMA Twitter Chat fame decided to ask everyone to wear blue on Friday to show support for people living with and affected by the big D. The idea caught on, and three years later, it’s still going strong. A giant blue wave, if you will. I was a little late to the party, but now I’m one of a zillion people out there sporting the blue and raising awareness. To find out more, click on the photo above to go to the Blue Fridays page at Diabetes Social Media Advocacy, or visit the Blue Fridays page on Facebook.

The Great Spousal Unit bought me these retro sneakers for Christmas last year. When she asked me what color I liked, you better believe I said blue right away.

Is it wrong to look at something in blue and wonder how you’d look wearing it on a Friday? I think not. #MakesSenseIfYouHaveDiabetes

Enjoy your weekend!
