This week of Thanksgiving, I am reminded of all of the blessings in my life. My husband, my family and friends, that my husband and I both have jobs that provide for us, living in a country where women are seen as equals, my health, robot parts, and this year, the Diabetes Online Community. I have met so many wonderful people both online and in person through the DOC, and for that I am so thankful. I have learned so much – combo bolusing for pizza and other fatty foods, super bolus, and some other tools and tricks of the trade that my endos haven’t shared over the years. Honestly, they probably don’t know – these tips are those that you learn living in the trenches.
One thing that the DOC has helped me with immensely is confidence going into a future pregnancy. Now that the hubs and I are officially “trying”, it is so great to know that there are people out there who will be cheerleaders when I do get pregnant and there are so many Moms with D who have chronicled their pregnancies who’s blogs I can use as reference when I’m feeling alone. It is so nice knowing we have our own little corner of the internet.
Thank you, DOC!!! You’re pretty rad.
