d-battle cry: You Can Do This

June 15, 2011

Today is the official “big day” launching a really cool project, the brainchild of the awesome Kim Vlasnik at her blog, textingmypancreas: The You Can Do This Project.

I’m totally inspired by all of the amazing d-peeps who have already done their videos and posted them! Goodness! Tons of incredible people with diabetes, sharing their stories and creating community. It makes me proud to be a part of the DOC. All it took was for all of our pancreata to konk out or sluff off, and we’re connected.

I’m also impressed by the timeliness of the folks who are already up there for viewing. For those of us who aren’t quite that put together, there is no close date on the project. That means we can make our own in the upcoming days or weeks and still contribute to this wonderful idea. Yes!

So get out your tissues, get ready to get a little verklempt and giggle too, and take a look at The You Can Do This Project. Then, go make your own and get it up there. I will too.

It’s true, every last bit of it. No matter how challenged, frustrated, annoyed, or rock-bottom awful D makes us feel: You can do this. WE can do this. Together.
