Let me preface this post by admitting that I am a big ol’ dork. I know and admit that. And having said that …. I wanted to say how super duper excited I am to finally meet some of my DOC friends in real life (IRL) next weekend!
I’m going to be traveling to DC for work, and after the trip had been booked, my friend Karen posted on Facebook asking who all was going to be attending the CWD Technology Conference in DC — which just so happened to be the weekend before I flew out there! So I made some calls, and was able to change my flight (saved my company tons of money by flying in earlier- double score!) and I was able to still register for the conference!
I found the DOC March of 2012.. and I’ve said this before, but since then, my life has changed – for the better. I am SO much more aware of my diabetes, and am in much better control (sheesh, the simple fact that I’m having a so far extremely healthy pregnancy carrying TWINS right now is proof of that!) than I’ve ever been. And to now “know” people like me that live with this disease every single day 24/7 like I do … it’s just nothing I’ve ever known/experienced before, and it’s not really something you can explain to someone unless they’re also living it.
So, to those of you that will be in DC next weekend – I cannot wait to meet you all IRL and thanks for making me feel “normal”! Oh and I’m also excited about learning new things at the conference – That’s the real purpose of it, right??
