The most surprising part of having this website has been the number of family members that have come up and said how they enjoy reading my blog each day. A lot of people never knew how much work goes in to being a diabetic. Also a lot of people never knew how much damage I had done to myself in the past. This weekend I had a number of people come up and say that they could not believe how great I looked and that they find my story remarkable.
From Aunt Fran to the gentleman that emailed me from Japan, I can't thank everyone enough for what you have done for me. I love hearing the stories of others succeeding because they visited my site and found that motivation that they needed. I also love hearing that people living without diabetes have decided to make a difference in the diabetes community. As diabetics we can't fight this disease alone, we need the support of husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.
