Well its Day 2 of the Diabetes Blog Week and todays topic is…
Many of us share lots of aspects of our diabetes lives online for the world to see. What are some of the aspects of diabetes that you choose to keep private from the internet? Or from your family and friends? Why is it important to keep it to yourself? (This is not an attempt to get you out of your comfort zone. There is no need to elaborate or tell personal stories related to these aspects. Simply let us know what kinds of stories we will never hear you tell, and why you won’t tell them.)

Hard topic since I can’t off the top of my head of my head think of anything in particular that I’ve not posted about on Twitter, Facebook or though this blog over the past 12+ years that I’ve been living with D. I’ve been rather frank at times that I’d had some backlash from other’s within the online diabetic community but their issues not mine. I’ve told things like I see them for myself and only my self and no one else.
I have had so many people B at me over the fact that I eat upwards of 250/300 grams of carbs in a day and do not support this low carb stuff that many have jumped on. Ya well so what for you it might be the right option but guess what what is right for you and maybe a few other’s isn’t right for everyone else, never has been and never will be because each person is different in how their medical condition needs to be handled plus not everyone with D only had to deal with D, some of us have other medical conditions that we where born with that might well mean that some treatments that are common for D are impossible or down right dangerous to even try to do so alternatives have to be found to get the same or similar results/control.
Well post more tomorrow, take care everyone!
