Currently I am on a diabetes blogging hiatus. Mostly because I have no inspiration right now for various reasons. But, I don't want to leave my readers hanging, so I'm starting up a little project. I'd very much like to share the stories of my non-blogging readers.
If you have diabetes, care for someone with diabetes, are a sibling, relative, friend of someone with diabetes, and you have a story to share, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I'd like to share your story with my readers. Because even though you may think you have nothing to say, everyone has a story to tell about diabetes. :)
I may not get to post all of them, but contact me and we'll see what I can get done. I'd really, really, really like it if there were some people who are not traditionally connected to diabetes (i.e. has it themselves, or is the primary caregiver of someone with diabetes). I'll take anyone, but I'd like to hear how your parent's diagnosis, or your best friend's low blood sugar while you were shopping, or your grandchild's first overnight stay with you after diagnosis went.
If you read this and you are a blogger, but know someone who might want to share their story who maybe doesn't read my blog, pass the info along.
There are a lot of ways that one can be affected by diabetes. I'd like for more people to realize in how many ways diabetes effects the people around the actual person living with the disease!
