#HAWMC Day 30 The End in One Word….

#HAWMC Day 29 Congratulations and a Pat on the Back!

Today’s challenge is to list three things we are great at:


1. researching anything!
2. keeping calm in a crisis!
3. keeping my promises–if I say I’m going to do something, you can count on me!

#HAWMC Day 28 The Best of the DOC Blogs

I find it very hard to determine which Type 1 diabetes blogs are best….because different blogs reach out to different audiences. There are great blogs written by moms of little girls with Type 1 for example, but would the mom of a 17 year old boy find that the most helpful? Probably not. So in the interest of sharing so many of the good resources in the DOC I am linking again to my previous post that categorizes some of my favorite blogs so people can find blogs that fit their particular situation. All have something wonderful to say and are worth checking out…but sometimes a person needs to connect to someone whose journey is more similar!

5. It’s Just A Number
The Highs and Lows of Type 1 Diabetes



#HAWMC Day 26 Worry-free Pass

wego day 26

If the genie in a bottle was giving out worry-free day passes, what day would I chose? wow……let me think on that….WOW….one day, huh?….WOW

Only one day?  Prom, graduation, college, starting career, marriage, birth of my grandchild…..only one day?  Can’t do it…maybe I’m selfish, but I want all those days to be worry-free like they are for parents who don’t have kids with chronic health issues like food allergies or Type 1 diabetes.

But I’d settle for 4 years worry-free for each of my two wonderful children.  The four years of college….let them go to the school of their dreams, no matter how far from home that may be.  And let them be safe from harm.

#HAWMC Day 25 Learning

wegoday25What have I learned from Health Activists bloggers?  Whew! Where do I start?

Probably the most important thing I learned is not from one specific Health Activist blogger but from them all….

I am not alone in this battle.
