It's been awhile

I have not posted since my Diaversary last year. Probably the longest stretch of keeping my mouth shut online, and it felt good.

Good in that I have not felt the need to rush to my computer each night to tell of all the diabetes drama in my life. Work has been so demanding that the last thing I want to do it look at a computer screen. So this mini vacation has been a good one for me.

The other side of it all is that I feel extremely far away from the DOC. I was so involved with all kinds of stuff from Vlogs to seminars to conventions and summits to podcasts and even rap battles! 

When I think back to all that stuff, the only thing I miss are all of my friends in the DOC. I know they are all still around and I am pretty sure they would welcome me back with open arms. That is one thing I know for sure, the DOC is made up of some exceptional, kind, loving, accepting people. I miss that.

I could play catch up on stuff going on but it would be better I think to let you know I am still around and will update you as we move along here. I am still as silly and crazy as ever. I still love all of you so much. I still have a non-functioning pancreas. And I still love bacon!

And hate clowns. ;)

Great update George. We miss you as well. Drop in and say hey sometimes.

I referred your blog to the TUDiabetes blog page for the week of May 23, 2016.

I hear where you're coming from. For me, I seldom blog much anymore, although I keep my Twitter feed very active with diabetes news as well as other stuff that's important to me. When I started this D-OC venture back in Aug-Sep 2005 (I actually deleted my very first "test" post since I was still trying to figure out how to blog at the time, but its definitely wasn't relevant anymore, so I deleted it, hence my first post is dated Sep 2005). I remember in those days that it was more about finding if there was anyone else like me, so Kerri Morrone-Sparling (including all the stuff about getting married and how to put a pump in a wedding dress) and Scott K. Johnson were the early faces in those days.

For me, the "vacation" from blogging about diabetes all the time was really a necessary break. As you know, you can over-do it and it gets to be too much and you get burned out. The Twitter stuff (for me) is less of a time investment. Still, everyone has all kinds of stuff going on so we get that you need a break from it once and a while. But its great that you checked in to let everyone know you haven't fallen off the face of the universe!

Great blog. Always nice seeing other T1Ds posting about their experiences with the disease.

I've been a T1D for over 2.5 years and have been able to stay off medication by following a mostly raw plant based diet. Check out my blog and help spread the word.
