I'm back from Florida and missing it something fierce! After spending Monday and Tuesday with a Gang of D Bloggers, the folks from Roche, ADA and AADE reps, and "pump bumping" with 600 PWDs & CWDs, coming back to the real world is quite a let down!
The real world hit me hard the minute I set foot in Orlando International and found out that my return flight would take off 3 hours late. When I finally did board the plane, I was seated next to a two year old child who didn't fall asleep and wouldn't allow me to either.
I couldn't find my car in the airport garage for a good 20 minutes when I landed at 1:30 in the morning - even though I was on the right parking level.
My "trusty" iPhone nearly died ( it was stuck in some sort of Apple symbol limbo that required me to press all the buttons at once and hope for the best) yesterday morning 2 hours before a very important conference call.
A lot happened in Florida and I'm still wrapping my head around it. The second annual Roche Diabetes New Media Summit was inspiring and educational and I will be posting about it in full detail on Monday, but I'll give you a few teasers to keep you wondering~
Teaser 1: The Diabetes world is marvelously small and I reconnected with someone from my diabetes past that played a huge role in how I view my life with "the betes."
Teaser 2: Traveling to The Roche New Media Summit + Ninjabetic never ='s smooth sailing.
Teaser 3: 36 Diabetes Bloggers talking with the ADA & the AADE about people with diabetes wants, needs, and requirements illicits conversations that are not only interesting, but down right passionate!
Teaser 4: Meter accuracy is on EVERYONE'S agenda, and it should be!
Teaser 5 + a bonus diabetes fact: Never let Cherise near a photo booth because she will come darn close to killing it.
