2007, Abbreviated

Taking a cue from Allison via Kerri, I’ve gone and dug up the opening lines from one significant post in each month of 2007. What a neat way to look back on the closing year!

Goodbye_07




January: Down on Big Pharma? You are not alone.

February: Lots of press recently about Merck’s brand spankin’ new Type 2 diabetes drug, Januvia.

March: Some very sad news today, I’m afraid.

April: Big news this week, Folks. Apple Inc. has sold its 100-Millionth iPod.

May: I just got off the phone with Mr. Universe himself, Doug Burns.

June: It saddens and upsets me to have to write this.

July:
My Inbox continues to overflow with questions about the tube-free OmniPod insulin delivery system.

August: You could say we’ve spurred a national debate here…

September:
So this whole low-carb thing about diabetes is driving me crazy.

October: I had the most absurdly frustrating phone briefing yesterday…

November: In light of recent events, as an adult with Type 1 diabetes, I’m feeling more disconnected than ever before.

December: There are so many new and colorfully wrapped health/patient (aka Health 2.0) web sites popping up all over the Net that I’m feeling positively showered.

Man, 2007 was a whirlwind year around here, mostly in a good way. Here’s hoping 2008 will bring more of the same (with a little smatter of that essential 5-letter dirty word, of course :)

    this was cool to read. I did a blurb myself taking opening lines, and it was very telling, though hard to squeeze it all into 12 lines, so I expanded to a new prjoect.

    I hope 2008 brings great things for you and all of us here in the diabetes community. Thanks again for being a voice for many of us who can’t or don’t speak as loudly (I currently have NO voice as I’ve lost it, so I really do need ya!)

    Just found your blog (via Organized Wisdom) while researching info for my son (he’s 12, was diagnosed with Type 1 in 2006). What I’ve read has been great so far, and the above list is quite intriguing. I look forward to reading more. Thank you.
