Joe is 26 and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 18. He says that starting a blog has been "really eye opening how big and brilliant the DOC is" and he wishes that he'd "known about it a lot sooner" and wants to show everyone with diabetes that we aren't alone and wants "everyone to know how much support is out there" and that's basically the intention I have for my blog, and I definitely agree with the DOC being brilliant! I think Joe's blog is really good, and I enjoyed reading it, so I would definitely recommend it and I'm sure it will go far and be a hit with the Diabetes Online Community. It's one to add to the list of fab diabetes blogs. To be honest, any blog about life with diabetes is fab because it's tough to live with diabetes and it takes dedication keep up a blog!
I would be able to write more about Joe's blog, however, my blood sugar is 3.1 as of about a second ago and unfortunately the need for treating my low blood sugar has taken over!
Anyway, I think Joe's blog is really good because it's funny and witty and captures really well just what it's like to live with Type 1.Thanks to Joe for contributing to all of the wonderful diabetes blogs that exist within the Diabetes Online Community, every diabetes blog out there is so helpful, and interesting and informative and everything that's good! (Apart from the ones that try and advertise cinnamon cures, those ones aren't so good...) And they're all a way of raising awareness and they are a lovely reminder that those of us with diabetes aren't alone in any aspect of it.
