Oldie but Goodie

I started DSMA twitter chats in July of 2010, thanks to you DSMA has grown. I decided it was time to revisit a twitter chat from August 2010, titled Diaversary, music and life. The response from everyone was amazing and I was introduced to “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leopard.

This was our first bilingual chat. Christina started tweeting the questions in spanish for the Latino Community (#dsmaEs). If you missed the chat, please feel free to answer the questions in the comment section.


1. What do you do on your diaversary – if anything? Do you celebrate?

2. Has living with diabetes shaped you into the person you are today? If so, in what ways?

3. If you were asked to dedicate a song to diabetes what would it be? and why?

4. What three words describe your life with diabetes?
