I know I haven’t had much to say this week. I’ve been sick with that nasty chest cold that’s sweeping the east coast this month, so I’ve been trying to lay low. Just not six feet under low. As such, I thought it would be nice to share some delicacies from other parts of the DOC (Diabetes Online Community).

I’m not linking today to the posts regarding renaming Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Although I have to admit to being in the “we’d still have to explain it anyway / let’s support everyone” group, my feeling is: Feel how you want to feel about it. If you want to say you have Pancreatic Distress Syndrome or something else instead of Type 1 or Type 2, then go ahead. And if you don’t like the idea of renaming what we have, I won’t try to convince you otherwise. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Whatever they are. No exceptions.

Now that that’s out of the way, try these on for size.

A post about posts.

I don’t know if I can handle Wordless Wednesday… I’m too much of a writer for that. Let’s see if I can just direct you to a couple of great posts I found today, with a minimal amount of explanation:

Mike Hoskins talks about lows in public. The public nature of hypoglycemia adds an extra, unwanted element. Find out how it affects Mike at The Diabetic’s Corner Booth.

And Scully got out to a local Crit race (I’m sure she knows what that means) Tuesday, and she talks about “Preparing her Diabetes”. I’m always fascinated by an athlete’s story. Read it at Canadian D-gal.
