WEGO Health’s 2016 Health Activist Awards

If you feel so inclined, I would greatly appreciate your endorsements for my nominations to WEGO Health’s 2016 Health Activist Awards.  In my opinion, we are all health activists by virtue of being engaged in our own healthcare stories, as well as being supportive members of online (and even offline!) communities.  Your interactions over the past 2 years have been invaluable to my healthcare journey, and I hope that I have offered that same level of support in return.

To endorse me, please see the link here.

Many thanks to WEGO Health for all that they do to make healthcare better!

Not-So-Terrible-Two’s

Very Light, No Sugar has reached its second blogoversary.  Although I find myself wondering how time has flown by so quickly, that simply means it’s been a fun two years.  In 2015, I had a lot to say at this time.  This year, I will keep it short and sweet.

Thank you to those who have visited my website over the past two years.  When starting a blog in 2014 from a tiny apartment in Rhode Island, I never imagined that people in 73 different countries would visit my little corner of the internet so far this year.

Although 2016 has brought some diabetes frustrations along the way, I am comforted in knowing that we have honestly shared our stories with the world.  Someone out there who needs to hear our words is listening.  The #doc and other healthcare arenas are platforms by which we can give a voice to a greater purpose, where we can make the decision to be good despite the bad that life throws at us.

Your faith and support on the bad days make the diabetes cross a lighter weight to carry.  Your genuine kindheartedness makes the good days that much sweeter.

I still daydream about the day when I will celebrate blogoversary # XYZ and get to write that our communal efforts cured diabetes that past year.  In the meantime, I am simply happy to have found your support, and hopefully to have offered some back in return.

 

Forever lifting my coffee mug to you,

Ally

XOXO
