Each day this April I will be writing a post for The Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge hosted by WEGO Health. It’s going to be a lot of fun and I’d love to see what you have to say about each of the topics, too. Check out the challenge here: http://info.wegohealth.com/HAWMC2012 Enjoy today’s topic!
#HAWMC Day 04
I write about my Diabetes because…
I’ve never been the type of girl to keep a consistent journal. Yeah sure I had the password diary and I wrote from time to time in my Unicorn diary, but usually I would lose it or stop writing completely, or it would become a sketchbook.
But for some reason I started a blog. I actually started this blog so that my videos had a place to live and so people on the DOC could find me. But now I feel this blog is helpful for others and me because I can share stories and experiences.
I think that one-day when I am old and forgetful I can look back on these blogs, (on a super high tech computer that will probably be inserted in my brain) and remember my life as a 20 something college student with type 1 diabetes.
What about my children? Wouldn’t it be great that if my future son or daughter could look back and see my videos and posts from when I was there age? I can only imagine how amazing that would be, and it could even bring us closer.
I write about diabetes to educate, inform, inspire, and share with other people who are interested to come and see. I write about diabetes for friends, family, and strangers. But mostly I write about diabetes for me.
Writing about my disease helps me cope. It helps me learn, and it helps me to remember what I have learned.
I am so glad I started.
