I have been dodging the Twitter game for a long time. I signed up once, way over a year ago, but I deleted the aaccount because I just didn't get it and I honestly didn't have the desire to learn. Besides, I didn't need anything else to occupy my time.
WELL, a few weeks ago I took the plunge again and became a "twit". I was still lost at first until Reyna splained a few things. NOW, I am ALMOST hooked. I think I like it because I can post freely without the worry of family or high school friends seeing everything... it's rather nice to be a little less filtered.
I have been pleasantly surprised to make some new connections in the DOC, but it was more than comforting to see the familiar faces of some of my favorite D Mama's(you guys rock btw!).
One of the connections I have made is with Bob Hawkinson (not that he has any clue who I am) who writes Living out Loud with Diabetes and also The Joy of Diabetes.
I found Living out Loud with Diabetes through Twitter and it caught my attention because it had a few funny post such as: Top 10 worst ways to check your bloodsugar, You might be a diabetic if and Things I have learned from the movies (this last one has nothing to do with D, but it is good for a chuckle).
Then as I was trying to google the website directly, I came across The Joy of Diabetes and decided to peak at a few posts. I learned that you can use a Ziploc baggie to waterproof your CGM just in case it falls in the toilet :) YES, it CAN happen!
Then... I came across a post that made me smile. Most of the time us D-Mama's are not noticed so I thought sharing this would be nice...
The Mothers of JDRF..on a mission :) by Bob Hawkinson
Small world, I spoke with one of my clients who wanted us to sponsor tshirts for a walk a thon they were having on their property for JDRF. I was given a phone number to call and spoke with the lady in charge who was the mother of little Kaylan who has been diabetic since age 2.
I had to laugh as I always love talking to the Moms at JDRF because they absolutely get things done. High energy and on a mission to find a cure, a solution, or an improvement in their childs life.
You know who they are...they are the one on every committee, getting 5x more stuff done than everyone else.
God Bless the Moms.....
I thought this was sweet and it felt good to know that not ALL of out craziness goes unseen :)
Thank you Bob!
At a glance, Living out Loud with Diabetes seems like a positive, informational and sometimes comical place to "hang" so go check out.
