This week, I want to share with you a truly inspirational blog – an amazing example of how a very positive light can be shed on having diabetes, or any chronic medical condition for that matter.

My friend Tim (not my patient) happens to be a Type 1 Diabetic, and he’s written a truly inspiring post on his blog, about his perspective on how he sees his diabetes being an advantage in his life.  This blog brought tears to my eyes, from laughter (he’s funny!), yes, but mostly from being so moved and heart warmed that he can find so many positive things in the challenges that he faces ever day.

Not to mention that he’s using his blog to raise funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Check it out – and please share your thoughts!

Tim’s amazing attitude is summed up in his catch line at the top of his blog about Type 1 Diabetes:
No longer a type, but more a skillset.
