DBW ~ Share and Don't Share

It's that time again....Diabetes Blog Week!!  So excited to be participating I'm hoping it gets me back in touch with my blog and, in turn, with all the blogs I love, and some new ones I'm sure I'll find!!

Thanks, Karen, for putting this together for the fourth year!!

Today's topic is:
Often our health care team only sees us for about 15 minutes several times a year, and they might not have a sense of what our lives are really like. Today, let’s pretend our medical team is reading our blogs. What do you wish they could see about your and/or your loved one's daily life with diabetes? On the other hand, what do you hope they don't see?

I happen to know that Bean's medical team does visit my blog from time to time and I love that they do!

This is my place to vent, rant, complain, rejoice, commiserate, and connect.  So, do I think about the fact that  Bean's FNP or CDE might read something less than favorable about a BG high or low...not really.  Well, maybe sometimes.  Does it affect what I write, not at all.

What's awesome about Bean's medical team is that I feel like I can be real with them and not worry about being judged....I do that enough myself! ;)  Yes, they will tell me 'like it is' but in a way that a friend would so you know it's coming from a helpful place and not a 'I know better than you because I have this medical degree' way.

I feel like we are truly a team, working together to help fight this crappy disease together to help Bean be as healthy as possible.


  1. That is so great you have such a supportive team! Glad to see you're doing the Dblog week!

  2. Yay!!!! I love when my Wife has a reason to blog. Let me rephrase that. She likes to step up to challenges and blog week or month is always a challenge that she likes to step up to. Thanks Karen for putting this together.

    Also I concur our Medical Support team is really amazing!!! It says a lot that they care enough to read Denise's Blog! I know they do it to see how Denise is doing just as much as how Bean is doing. :)


Hey, Thanks for sharing!! Your comments make me :)!!
Had to turn on comment moderation due to silly spammers....
