A Few of My Favorite PWD (Person With Diabetes) Blogs

Blaugust day 12!  Is this month over yet?!

Many of you know I'm a diabetic.  Those that are also diabetic know exactly how much hard work that is to maintain your glucose levels.

Since this month is Blaugust and about ALL types of blogging, I wanted to share some links of some of my favorite PWD bloggers.  Just like gamer blogs, there are oodles of diabetic blogs.

Over the past two years I've discovered the online diabetic community and they are really my support group in so many ways.  The diabetes healthcare community is seeing what a huge impact social media can have on treatment.  The Diabetes Social Media Advocacy (DSMA) #dsma is a great tool for the Diabetes Online Community (DOC).

Here are links to a few of my favorite diabetes blogs.  I hope you find them as helpful as I have.

Texting My Pancreas - Kim is the founder of the You Can Do This Project,  and very accessible for discussion on Twitter as well @txtngmypancreas

diabetogenic - Renza lives down under and has a great blog about her own personal every day experiences with diabetes.  She's on Twitter @RenzaS

Rich the Diabetic - Rich has an interesting life story.  His journey on keeping his glucose in check and staying active and fit is a real inspiration.  On Twitter @richthediabetic

Diabetesaliciousness - Loved the name of Kelly's blog the first time I saw it.  She's "all about spreading diabetes validation through humor, ownership, & advocacy." Find her on Twitter @diabetesalish
