The diabetes online community is full of inspiring people. We are all inspiring to some extent, we all have something share and there will always be someone who is touched by our stories and experiences. That’s the most wonderful thing about the DOC, you never know when you’re going to make a difference in someone else’s life. And that’s why we’re here. But there are people who work hard every day to be a voice for everyone, to make everyone speak, so we can be heard. One of those people is Kim over at Texting My Pancreas, who came up with this wonderful idea called You Can Do This, a project I have yet to participate in because I’m extremely camera shy.
According to its creator, “You Can Do This is a growing community of videos, created by and for people with diabetes, with the aim of providing validation, hope and encouragement through honest talk for the diabetes community.” — And the project is 1 year old today! Congratulations, Kim! And thank you for giving the DOC a place to make a difference. And a big thank you to all the people who have participated and have words of encouragement for every PWD regardless of what type we’re talking about.
Maybe this anniversary will give me a good reason to be less camera shy. We all can do this!
