#HAWMC WEGO Health Activists Writer’s Month Challenge: Why I Write

WEGO day 1

This year I am taking part in the WEGO Challenge. 30 days, 30 prompts, 30 posts. So bear with me!

The question of the day is “Why do I write?”

KC & Company (Keep Calm and Carry On) started as a place for me to vent when my daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It has grown into a blog that discusses parenting teens/preteens with T1 diabetes or food allergies. I try to share what struggles we’ve faced and what we’ve learned. I also try to connect people who are in the same situation with resources that could help make their struggle a bit easier.

The DOC (Diabetic Online Community) saved my sanity in the months after KC’s diagnosis–by helping even one person through our stories, I am able to pay back some of the support I have received.

Thanks WEGO for helping us raise awareness about a variety of health issues!
