No D-Day Tomorrow!


 After this past weekend diabetes is a topic I can’t stop thinking about. I keep replaying all of the people and moments that made my 20th anniversary of diagnosis a true celebration of life and support.

But tomorrow, I am going to shelve it.

Tomorrow is “No D-Day” and it means we spend one day not writing about, tweeting about, Facebook status-ing about Diabetes!

We are more than a disease, a lot more and tomorrow is a day to share some of that. There are many facets to each one of us and since we do talk so much about our D lives, we maybe miss some other cool stuff about each other.

Maybe talk about your family, or your favorite past time. You could post about a great vacation story or a favorite movie.

Tell us a little something about yourself that you want us to know! We would love to read about it.

If you do post about it, be sure and add it to the No D-Day blogroll. It’s located at That way there is one place to find them all!

The other side of this non-D coin is Twitter and Facebook. How can we possibly tweet about our day when we have diabetes? It’s easy, don’t mention it. There is more going on in your day than diabetes and tomorrow is a day to share it!

It’s not easy. It is a serious exercise to avoid all D talk but, I think it is a positive step in seeing that life is more than diabetes. We are more than diabetics or PWD’s.

We give diabetes a lot of attention, let’s spend one day and give the rest of ourselves the spot light.

I had totally forgotten about this, until seeing someone mention it on Twitter the other day... So that and your post today so completely helped! At first, I thought it would be easy. Then, thinking about it more, I thought it would be very tough because nothing un-D related came to mind. Then, I figurd I'd pull a non-D post from the past... but that backfired and wouldn't work. So I was perplexed. But NOW, have got one that I've been wanting to write about - so hope everyone enjoys it! Thanks for this, George!

Kerri is always late. Nevermind the fact that I'm even later than she is. :-)

I have seen many posts similar to this one on internet but all other have filler content and are not up-to-the mark. This post especially made me to post my comments as its credible,Rolex Milgauss watches clearance it’s very good!
