A Fresh Start

Perspectives

I can’t believe it! We’ve made it through another year. By all accounts, 2016 wasn’t the best of times but in my opinion, it wasn’t the worst of times either. If any one of us looks back, we can find things to be grateful for. I think this is especially true for those of us living with diabetes. For me, 2016 was all about stepping out more into the DOC (diabetes online community) and exposing to my friends and family, more of what it's like to live day in and out with diabetes which includes blogging for you here at Diabetes Sisters over the next 6 months.
