I've Been Tagged - And A Few Diabetesalicious Shout Outs To Boot!!

I've been tagged by two different bloggers ( Colleen & Naomi) regarding the 6 word memoir.
You know the one, where you
1) Write your own six word memoir
2) Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you want
3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere
4) Tag at least five more blogs with links; and
5) Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

I'll agree to tag 8 since I was contacted twice.
HERE IT GOES.

Young Crazy Diabetic Kids Hanging Out & Causing Mayhem - I love it!!
I was contacted last Wednesday (I'm a little late, I know) by Danial Opalacz, a student at Colby College in Maine.
Danial and his friends have started on On-line community called Young Diabetics
For, you guessed it, Type 1 teen and college age diabetics. The idea came aboutafter a good was diagnosed with Type 1.
When I diagnosed, I remember my father telling me not to tell any potential employers about my diabetes or the DMV. My father kept it a secret for most of his life. I haven't.
Today, it's all about communicating, sharing, and owning our diabetes. I'm always happy to give a shout-out to an organization that will allow for that. Check Young Diabetics out and see for yourself.
MY very own Diabetesaliciousness Diabetic Supporter!
On April 19th, my wonderful young cousin Margaret and her wonderful young mother Ginny are participating in JDRF's South Carolina Walk to Cure Diabetes.
This is their second year walking and I'm so proud of them! These Chiclets are committed to finding a cure for their friend who was diagnosed at the age of 4, and a boat load of cousins who are all Type 1's. If you 'd like to donate to their team, here's the link. http://walk.jdrf.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=extranet.personalpage&confirmID=86987972
Give them a big " THANKS" and tell them that you think that they're Diabetesalicious!!!

Yay! I love your memoir.

I'll show my son the young diabetics link. So far he's not online talking to other diabetics, but that may change as he grows. Maybe he'll lurk.

Your six are great!

And I'm not young, but I'll go peek at the new site.
