DSMA Feb Blog Carnival

hey folks

hope you're well :)

i've had another pretty awful non-d related week which has resulted in more stress and tears..

however i'm determined that the rest of this week is going to be okay and stress isn't going to be affecting my levels this weekend!

anyways, back to the blog title.. i recently discovered DSMA (Diabetes Social Media Advocacy) on twitter and have been reading through a number of the discussions and points of views from other members of the DOC which i've found really interesting, as well as new blogs to read!

the latest blog on the website is the DSMA blog carnival and this months topics is....

"The most awesome thing I have done in spite of diabetes is...."

yet to come! i've only had diabetes for around 18 months (officially) and yes i'm still here, not totally insane, getting used to the appointments, carb math, testing etc. i'm going to florida in may this year which will be my first holiday away as a diabetic, as i've mentioned before my last holiday was a few weeks before my diagnosis so it wasn't a great time :(
i'm hoping to do lots of awesome things in the future, some of them little like injecting in public or some of them big like going abroad for 2 weeks or going to a My Chemical Romance concert in 2 weeks time ^.^

who knows what the future holds? :)

this post is my february entry in the DSMA blog carnival. if you'd like to participate too, you can get all of the information at

You'll be fine on your first holiday as a PWD. I am glad you found the DOC and DSMA! Thank you for posting! btw, I love the teapot and the flowers on your page.

Hmmm, your most awesome thing is yet to come? While I'm sure that is true (because it sounds like you've got some awesome plans), I'd say you've already done a bunch of awesome things too!! Got through your first year and a half with diabetes. Learned a whole new way of life. Plenty of awesome things, with plenty more yet to come!!

Thanks for joining the DSMA blog carnival - and I hope the rest of your week has no stress or tears!
