I forgot to mention yesterday how I participated in the twitter #dsma conversation last night. I was feeling like I needed to be surrounded by community, and fortunately for me Wednesday nights are usually pretty good for that. I also had not participated in #dsma for a while, but figured why not.
I had barely even said hello before I received a number of wonderful, touching messages from people -- people only online for a twitter-conversation about diabetes -- who had heard of yesterday's events and wanted to offer their sympathies. It was truly heartening to see this outpouring of support from people who, other than sharing the same autoimmune disease, don't know anything about me other than where I'm from. Thank you, Diabetes Online Community. You really were a community to me yesterday.
