My Favorite Things, Sunday 5/18, Blog Week 2014

on May 20, 2014

I have thoroughly enjoyed my first foray into participating in Diabetes Blog Week 2014 & I can’t wait until the next one.

I have to admit, I’m a Kerri Sparling, Six Until Me, addict!! She’s the first blog I found after my diagnosis and she made me realize I wasn’t alone. So, I have to add her at the top of my list as my VERY FAV DIABETES BLOG. But I’m biased. I live in New England and also get my diabetes care in Boston, so how could I NOT like her.

Here’s a list of the blogs I’ve been creeping on. Life has been busy this week so I haven’t commented on any of them, but I promise to start!! Thanks to everyone for the great Blog Week posts!!

Karen, Bittersweet (I also knit, so she caught my eye.) Thanks for starting this wonderful project, Karen!

Everybody at Diabetes Mine.

Kelly at Diabetealiciousness.

George at Ninjabetic.

Christel at The Perfect D.

Rhonda at Fifteen Wait Fifteen.

As well as Scott Johnson & Scott Brenner!!!!


I could go on and on!! There were so many GREAT entries!! Please check out the list of participants at Bitter Sweet to check everyone out!! Thank you for reading my humble stories and opinions. I’m just hoping to let others know they’re not alone in this struggle!!!! Thanks for your support!!!!

And, finally, Remember, Test!!! Don’t Guess!! (I apologize, I can’t give exact credit to whomever first said that but it resonates with me so I pass it along to you!!! Thanks to the author. They are not my original words, but I say it to myself everyday!!)
