What I've learned...

What we’ve learned - Sunday 5/15: Last year, Wendy of Candy Hearts made a suggestion for this year.  She commented “I think Day 7 should be a post about stuff we've learned from other blogs or the experience of coming together online...”  Today, let’s do just that!!  What have you learned from other blogs - either this week or since finding the D-OC?  What has your experience of blogging the DBlog Week topics with other participants been like?  What has finding the D-OC done for you?  If you'd like, you can even look ahead and tell us what you think the future holds!

 This will be short and sweet, especially since it is also a Sunday and the Timmy had some drumming to do at church today. That means we have to be at the church at 7am until 1230pm (or later). So yeah. On with the show!

What I've learned since actually participating (and completing!!!!!) D-blog week this year is I am not alone. Whether it is a fellow T1 diabetic or a mama/papa of a T1. A person directly affected by diabetes or just a friend/family member who is only affected by diabetes because they love me. I am not alone. My thoughts are the same thoughts of others. My worries are the same worries of someone else. My health and happiness are also a concern of some very caring people out there. I am not alone. If I could just communicate this in a letter to little Beth like I did on Day 2, I would tell her that she isn't alone. She isn't ever alone. As long as she opens her eyes (and heart), she will see this.

So thank you guys. Thank you for showing me that in my crazy isolated world, I am not alone. And I love each and every one of you.



  1. You are not alone in this fight. We are all here for each other.

  2. That is the what I came away with after this blog week too. I feel so much less alone and I am very grateful for that.

  3. We love you too, and one day nobody will suffer with diabetes anymore. Whether it is on this Earth or when Jesus makes our bodies new! But I hope that it is soon!

  4. You are definitely not alone! Glad you are blogging!
