Day 7: What I've Learned

I learned that I not nearly as disciplined with my diabetes as I should be.

I learned that I am way more disciplined with my diabetes than I need to be.

I learned that I handle challenges really well.

I learned that I could be better at handling challenges.

I learned that I have a very positive outlook.

I learned that I need to lighten up a bit.

I learned that there are a lot of people out there just like me.

I learned that I am absolutely unique.

I learned that, when it comes right down to it, diabetes is a very individual disease.

I learned that I am not alone.

The DOC (diabetes online community) is made up of people who come together for support, for knowledge, for encouragement and friendship.  Diabetes is what we have in common.  And sometimes that's all we have in common.  People I might never connect with in person, I connect with in the DOC.  Because they get me the way most people don't.  And that, my friends, is priceless.

Thank you Karen for organizing this fabulous week of blogging.  I feel so honoured to have been part of it and cannot wait to do it all again next year.


  1. What a great way to sum things up. :)

  2. Celine,
    I'm so impressed with your running - marathons, etc. Wow. I did a road race once...and I walked it! Anyway, good to "meet" you out here in the DOC. Looking forward to reading more.
