The reason I started blogging was in the hopes of being able to still be socially acceptable. After Julia's diagnosis, I needed an outlet. Everywhere I went and all I could talk about was diabetes and how Julia was doing. I even bombarded one friend in the parking lot of the mall. So I knew if I didn't find somewhere else to let all my thoughts out I would end up without any friends FAST! Blogging has given me the outlet I needed. It gives me a way to process my feelings good and bad.
The other thing I am grateful for is all the other D Mamas I have found. Reading their blogs has given me so much comfort. Even though we don't "know" each other, I feel like I have found so many long lost friends. I read posts that I identify with and that break my heart. But I also read posts that bring me joy for kids and families I have never met. I no longer feel so alone in the crazy mixed up diabetes world.
