I just had an essay about living with Type 1 diabetes published in the New York Times, and let me tell you this: few things make me happier than feeling like I’m connecting with people about something that’s such an important part of my life. Many thanks to Tara Parker-Pope for posting the piece, and for everyone who has commented on it or forwarded it to family and friends. I really appreciate it — please continue to spread the word!
Also, thanks to encouragement from other people in the diabetes world (Manny and Kerri, I’m looking at you), I just signed up for Twitter. I don’t know what this means, exactly — I’ve never been fond of Tweeting — but should you be interested in joining the experiment, it’s reluctdiabetic . Sign up — and send suggestions!
