    This was such an amazing week. I loved getting to know the wonderful bloggers of the DOC! But as a side note, I feel like I should explain that I don’t have a thing against Pharmacists in general…just MY pharmacist. He thinks it’s funny to give me 1 vile of insulin when I go in to fill my THREE boys perscriptions. He says he’ll mail me the rest, when the rest doesn’t come for over a week and that vile only lasts 5 days. He has been my nemesis for many years. My visits with him are ALWAYS blogworthy! :)

    That was my favorite prompt to write about and read about. And what was cool was how different people spun it.

    I too hope DBW is an annual event. I am sure it will be since it was so successful!

    Diabetes Blog Week was fantastic!
    It gave me a better understanding of the bloggers I normally read, while introducing me to a whole new crop of dbloggers !
    And thanks for the shoutout Amy- I’m honored to have made it in the “Smart-Ass Humor” category ;)

    Hi Amy,

    Thank you for the mention! Thinking about a cure has definitely been thought-provoking. Thank you for continuing to keep the diabetic community informed. I actually read your guest post on the new Revel minimed pump, and found it to be very informative when making a decision on a new pump.

    I also absolutely enjoyed Diabetes Blog Week and getting to know my fellow d-bloggers and d-community! I look forward to reading your blog and getting to know you better!

    It was very interesting reading those posts. After almost 38 years with Type I, I still believe that the disease will not be cured during my lifetime. I have never dreamed what I would do if I didn’t have Type I. Rather, I try to think back to those days, so long ago, when I didn’t have it. However, I can barely recall them!

    Great round up Amy – and thank you for the mention!

    I got a kick out of everyone’s stuff here – and am happy to see some new blogs I need to go check out!

    And because I’m perpetually behind in my blog reading, I’ll be working on catching up with everyone’s blog posts for WEEKS! :-)

    Great recap, Amy! Thanks for the shoutout, though I’m sorry to have been so “vengeful” in my writing about Life After a Cure… Didn’t start that way, but the more I thought about how long it’s taken, the more bitter I got. Anyhow. Like others, I’ll be catching up and reading posts for weeks! Hope it is an annual thing.

    Other than infectious diseases, no chronic disease has ever been cured within the last century (not one!) . It’s time to wake up to the idea that diabetes will always be part of life.

    I would demand a refund of all the money I have spent on diabetes supplies just trying to stay alive! Yeah I know that would go over like a lead balloon lol !
    Just image that would be some refund having type 1 for almost 34 years!

    I believe in a cure because I’ve been functionally cured of type 1 diabetes through an islet cell transplant clinical trial. Life now is wonderful :) If you want to learn more about my story or just check out the trial I was involved in with the Chicago Diabetes Project go to:

    I don’t really know what too say, I’m affraid if there will be a cure I’ll have damage, And it wont work. But I pray every day that there will be one, Because I wanted to be in the Marines…..I’m not interested in being that guy at the desk, Thats for when I’m retired…And if even – so, I don’t think I’ll be interested in a desk job then. So back too the topic, I understand they are going through all these tests and stuff, Think of the FDA….They want money. I belive, I will never get too see one in my life time, And that it will be a while.
