The DL

What we’ve learned - Sunday 5/15: Last year, Wendy of Candy Hearts made a suggestion for this year. She commented “I think Day 7 should be a post about stuff we've learned from other blogs or the experience of coming together online...” Today, let’s do just that!! What have you learned from other blogs - either this week or since finding the D-OC? What has your experience of blogging the DBlog Week topics with other participants been like? What has finding the D-OC done for you? If you'd like, you can even look ahead and tell us what you think the future holds!

This week was so amazing. I can't believe this is the last day! My personal favorite was the diabetes blooper topic. Every time I read one, I couldn't help but to think, "Yep done that!" It's nice to know that any time we make a mistake, we know that we aren't the first.

More importantly, this week taught me that I am not alone. No matter how dark, sad, lonely, or afraid I get, there is always someone out there who knows EXACTLY how I feel.

Since I am a little newer to the DOC this week was a great way to get some new blogs to read and hear stories I never thought I would. I didn't even know type 1.5 was a real thing! I love hearing all the different aspects, because we are all affected and moved by each other.

I am SO thankful that Karen at Bitter Sweet put this together.

Together we can make a difference and help each other lead happier and healthier lives. Thank you to those who participated, who made me laugh, cry, relate, and remind me that we all have a voice and a story to tell.
