Dearest DOC- Thank You

Dearest DOC:

THANK-YOU.

Thank you for always being there for me and welcoming me into your world with open arms.

Thank you for writing posts that sometimes make laugh, sometimes make me cry, but ALWAYS make me learn.

Thank you for allowing my diabetes voice to become more developed and defined, while still remaining a unique one among so many wise.

I learn so much from each and every one of you in Dblogville that it truly boggles the mind!

From the parents I learn about heartbreak, tenacity, and ALWAYS putting the ones you love before yourselves.

From the Type 1’s I’ve learned about my own issues and I see each and every one of you in myself.

For the Type 2’s, I’ve learn that your struggles are just as challenging as mine. I have come to realize that while we have different types of Diabetes, we are all still persons with diabetes. I am so GRATEFUL for that.

To the Type 1.5’s, you’ve shown me that there is another type of Diabetes entirely.

For those of you who struggle with Gestational Diabetes, you’ve taught me about sacrifice.

To the type 3’s you’ve shown me the other side of the diabetes coin. You’ve given me an intimate glimpse of how my diabetes affects the people who love me.

I love you all, and am so thankful to be part of your world.

Because of you, every single day I feel like I’m part of a whirlwind force in the world of diabetes- AND WE KICK ASS!

Lots of love, luck, laughter, and continued good health (faulty pancreases & all) to each and every one of you!!

Thank you for being YOU. It helps us parents tremendously to see someone with diabetes live life like there's no tomorrow.

BTW, what the heck is Type 3? I've been out of the loop too long.

Dear Kelly:

Thank you for being there, for loving cupcakes, for being funny and liking all the same things. You rock, you roll, you're fabulous, darling. The DOC wouldn't be half as cool without you in it.
