You're all going to have to bear with me for a minute or two.  I need to gush.  I read all your comments.  I treasure all your comments!  Writing all that I have, there's been this little fear that it will change the way people think of me, that it won't be well-received.  And then I come here and read what people write at the end of my posts.  And I cry.  I've never felt so wholly-accepted for who I am and all I've been through.  Honestly, if you've read all of this, you know more about me than even my own family.  And your support and encouragement have done so much to help me heal as I've written everything down and laid everything bare.  You all rock!  As d-moms, as friends, as human beings.  It's amazing how friendships through the computer can become so much more meaningful, so much more incredible.  For all the bad that diabetes brings, the bonds it helps us foster is a truly wonderful and amazing thing!  Please don't ever under-estimate how meaningful your comments and friendships are to me!


  1. It is amazing, isn't it?

    You're just bopping along in life, feeling alone...and all of the sudden there's an open door that leads to friendships you never thought possible.

    I love your posts. Keep 'em coming....and, btw, I think you're beautiful.

    You can let it all go, my friend. Anything you feel ashamed about, anything you deem unforgivable. You're on a new road and that other stuff is all old news.

    So blessed to walk alongside folks like you on this journey. Looking forward to what tomorrow brings ;)

  2. I am blessed to know you Cindy. You are an amazing person in my eyes. Love to you!

  3. I didn't like what I my eyes...hell you are an amazing person with our without my eyes!

    I'm losing it Cindy! Thanks for putting up with me!

  4. LOL at Meri...dear god I hope she doesn't lose her eyes!!!

    Cindy, I am truly grateful for you and your insight. I hope you don't mind that I linked you to my post yesterday about d' renting Joe. You are an invaluable resource to me. I want to do a great job by my son. I believe you help me with that...and I have loved the friendship that has grown between all of us as we each share our lives with each other.

    Have a great weekend...and GUSH AWAY GIRL!!!

  5. Would you believe I have a post started where I talk about my friend in my computer???
    I love coming here to the land of acceptance in all my craziness. ")
