Admiring our differences

On May 9, 2011 by Cherise Shockley

Admiring our differences – Monday 5/9: We are all diabetes bloggers, but we come from many different perspectives. Last year, Diabetes Blog Week opened my eyes to all of the different kinds of blogs (and bloggers) out there – Type 1s, Type 2s, LADAs, parents of kids with diabetes, spouses of adults with diabetes and so on. Today let’s talk about how great it is to learn from the perspectives of those unlike us! Have you learned new things from your T2 friends? Are D-Parents your heroes? Do LADA blogs give you insight to another diagnosis story? Do T1s who’ve lived well with diabetes since childhood give you hope? Pick a type of blogger who is different from you and tell us why they inspire you – why you admire them – why it’s great that we are all the same but different!!



Please excuse the extra bumps in the vlog and my bad hair-softball wore me out:)

Be Blessed

  • Not corny at all!!! I love that you vlogged too – what an awesome way to capture the thoughts that weren’t flowing into words.

  • Cherise, with all you do, I’m amazed that you were able to squeak out a vlog! Way to go! I admire you and your generous acceptance and even encouragement of our differences. :)
