Day 3 – Your Biggest Supporter. Sure, our diabetes care is ultimately up to us and us alone. But it’s important to have someone around to encourage you, cheer you, and even help you when you need it. Today it’s time to gush and brag about your biggest supporter. Is it your spouse or significant other? Your best friend, sibling, parent or child? Maybe it’s your endo or a great CDE? Or perhaps it’s another member of the D-OC who is always there for you? Go ahead, tell them just how much they mean to you!
So last night I sat down to start writing today's post, and I didn't get very far. Part of the problem is that I blogged about this topic two years ago. My biggest supporter is, of course, my husband.
|He's goofy, but I love him.|
That's when it hit me. More than 130 other bloggers getting the word out and sharing their thoughts during Diabetes Blog Week. Not to mention the countless others out there reading and commenting on all of the posts. Web-sites like TuDiabetes and Diabetes Daily who have helped spread the word. The Just Talking podcast, which had me on as a guest last night. All those tweets about #DiabetesBlogWeek. It instantly became clear just who I wanted to thank today for all of their support.
This whole week has felt like a totally awesome dream - one I fear I will wake from at any moment, like Dorothy from Oz. ("But it wasn't a dream. It was a place. And you and you and you...and you were there.") Without all of you, there would be no Diabetes Blog Week. So today, know that you have my thanks for all of your support. And give yourself a pat on the back for this awesome thing you have done
