First Blogaversary!

Today is Teapot_Diabetics 1st birthday!

Wooooooot :D

I can't believe it's been a year already, it's gone far too quickly!

When I joined the forum last year I came across a number of great blogs and thought I'd have a go. It was a scary thought at first, opening myself up to total strangers about a condition that I was still getting to grips with myself.

I wanted to share my D experiences with people and hopefully alter people's perception/awareness about D as it doesn't get much press in the UK, nevermind good press! I also wanted to help people in a similar boat to me. D is a very lonely and emotional condition, and talking to fellow sufferers helps me personally a great deal.

Shortly after my first post I discovered the DOC (Diabetes Online Community) and haven't looked back since :) Unfortunately I can't participate as much as I'd like due to time differences but I love taking part in the DSMA blog carnival and talking to people all over the world with D via Twitter and Facebook.

I know that my blog isn't all unicorns and sparkles sometimes but neither is D, it's bloody hard work sometimes! However without it, I wouldn't have had the privilege to meet so many incredible people, on and offline, who either have D themselves or support a loved one. Over the past 12 months I've found a whole new support network which I'm very thankful for, especially during the past few weeks.

Thank you to everyone who has read my posts
Thank for the lovely comments you leave me, they are very much appreciated :)
Thank you to the DOC

D-peeps are the best.

Happy Blogaversary!!! So true, the D-Peeps are the best...I remember where I was without you all, and it was a very sad and lonely place. So glad we have each other!!! :)
