It’s been a big week! I’ve taught Yoga in Italy and Switzerland and managed to keep up my commitment to blog for Diabetes Blog Week for 7 days. A first for me as I lead such an active life that it’s hard to commit to doing something, other then my work, consistently and to a topic. So first, a big THANK YOU to Karen Graffeo for spearheading this truly uplifting project.
I have read as many blogs as I could and have learned a lot. The main thing has been to realise that I’m not alone in all this. This was truly brought home last night when during my nightly injection half the insulin didn’t seem to go in. I’d read about it in my LADA support group but didn’t actually understand what it meant until it happened to me. I was completely freaked out when I pulled out the needle and the Insulin squirted all over the bathroom counter. I immediately went online and asked for advice and within minutes people responded. I went to sleep feeling relaxed and reassured. I reckon the diabetes online community is full of super heroes!
There are two bloggers whom I really connected with this week one was Frank from Type 1 writes . His honest story telling is real and meaningful. I also fell in love with Coffee and Insulin’s writing style and her ability to take us on a journey to different countries while making us laugh! Both these blogs had so many great posts during the week I can’t share just one.
I want to thank everyone who took the time to read my blog and for commenting and will continue to share my journey with Yoga and Diabetes and to stay on track with regular blogging.
It’s early Sunday morning here in Italy and the last day of our yoga immersion so I better get off the computer and prepare my food for the day…I think I’ll make….Bliss balls just for a change!
With great respect… Rachel
