    Great posts, Allison and Amy! Loved hearing about your accomplishments, from Europe-traveling to online navigating. I’ve wondered what mine is: and I think I fall more in line with Amy, as far as nothing all exotic or fascinating – just reaching and living my dream of journalism. Something I wasn’t always sure would be possible, but came to be. So there’s that. Thanks for doing what you both do, here and everywhere else!

    When I was diagnosed with T1 at the age of 37, I had no where to turn! What I did find was this blog, and I thank my lucky stars for it.

    I’m also quite thankful that Amy posted information about a patient mentor program that helps other people with diabetes. If she had not posted it, I would not be involved with the program! I never would have thought that I would be telling people how they can live a fruitful life with diabetes – - -I thought it was too private a disease. But I realized the more “out” I am with my d, the more I’m able to help others.

    Allison and Amy-

    Thank you for participating in the blog carnival. I love how the both of you continue living your life and take things as they come. Travel, eating, blogs and excercising in spite of diabetes.

    Be Blessed

    I loved both of your takes on the most awesome things you’ve done!! Traveling alone overseas takes some guts!! And coming out of your shell (love that) to advocate and travel – along with staying so active and busy – all while managing diabetes? No easy feat there, huh. You both are quite inspirational. Thanks so much for participated in the blog carnival!! :)

    Amy and Allison,

    You two are very inspirational. I love your positive and can do attitudes. Your absolutely correct, life’s too short and we must go for it. I wasn’t familiar with the DSMA blog carnival. I’ll be checking it out. Thanks.
    Good luck and stay active.

    Great stories Allison and Amy! Traveling overseas by yourself I think would be scary no matter what. So, that’s quite a feat. And, helping others by putting yourself out there whether online or speaking in person is also very commendable. Love the “I Can Do It” attitudes!
