After Thoughts: 1 Happy Diabetic!

I know I say this every week – but what a great show last night!

We talked with Bill Woods and the team at 1 Happy Diabetic.  Bill has been doing videos about his life with diabetes for years.  They are a very refreshing look at life with diabetes, and while often tackling some not-so-happy topics, Bill has always found a way to leave you feeling good.  It’s incredibly empowering.  Some of his work is even being used for training EMT’s and law enforcement personnel.  Very cool.

To take things to the next level, Bill has pulled together a great group of people to provide even more videos and content.  It’s a very exciting step, and I can’t wait to watch these folks work together.

As the show was going on, I happened to catch a very cool blurb in the chat room:

We heard from Mike, Yogi, and Suzanne last night, only missing Ryan who was probably off walking with cougars in South America somewhere, as well as a couple members of the diabetes community.  One caller (Bode? Brode?) said he was so inspired by Bill that he is going to start making his own videos!  That is advocacy in action right there!

The whole show was a lot of fun, and I hope you’ll take some time to check it out.  Thank you Bill and everyone from 1 Happy Diabetic!
