I am so floating high up on cloud 9.
I woke up this am wishing I just could go back to bed. 6 am just comes too fast. I did not want to go to school, I wanted to sleep. I resisted the urge, got up, and off I went. I catch the 6:39 am bus to go to school.
Fast forward a few hours and I'm on my way home. I come home and Jan (roommate/friend) tells me she saved the paper as there was an article on Juvenile Diabetes she thought I would be interested in. I was excited.
I look at the paper. It is the front page of the living section. It is about a mom who has a T1D daughter on the pump and cgm. The front picture showed her Dexcom G4 (yes I'm very jealous as I'm still using the Seven +) and a picture of her sister testing her blood glucose. The article was about their family and how the mom has a FB group for locals and even runs a T1D support group at the local hospital. In the article was information on the FB group, when the support group meetings are held, and an e-mail to contact the mom.
Right away I requested to join the group on FB and I e-mailed the mom. I cannot tell anyone how much this made my day. Most of you know I was living in the Boston area and recently moved to Pennsylvania. I was going to local support groups and events, mostly an insulin pumpers group. I was so sad to leave that all behind. I cannot wait to attend these meetings and get to know my local D peeps.
Now my day has been made. It is perfect. Some may think of this a a small thing, but its the little things that make the world so great.
