#DBlogWeek: Sharing and Caring

Somehow I missed that yesterday was the start of another #DBlogWeek. What is it? It’s a week where we diabetes-related blogs post each day focused on a particular subject or topic.

Today’s topic: :  “Many of us share lots of aspects of our diabetes lives online for the world to see.  What are some of the aspects of diabetes that you choose to keep private from the internet?  Or from your family and friends?  Why is it important to keep it to yourself?  (This is not an attempt to get you out of your comfort zone.  There is no need to elaborate or tell personal stories related to these aspects.  Simply let us know what kinds of stories we will never hear you tell, and why you won’t tell them.) (Thank you Scott E of Rolling in the D for this topic.)”

I know that I have been brutally, painfully honest on here, often at my own expense. It’s weird and hard to know that any or all of your 1500 facebook friends can read your blog posts, especially when I’ve posted about my battle with diabulimia and other sensitive subjects. However there are a few things I will not share on here (so don’t ask!) 

1. Sex as it relates to diabetes. Yes, wearing a pump makes things more, um, interesting than for normal people. However that is not something I’m comfortable talking about on here. There are other bloggers who have tackled it, and good for them! But I will not. 

2. Specific information regarding my doctor, insurance company, medical supply company, etc. If any of them were writing a blog about me, I’d either want to know about it and give permission to be mentioned directly, or I’d rather them be vague and offer no specifics. It makes things easier, I avoid a lawsuit, it’s a good day. 

3. I thought I had three but I guess I only have two. Whoops! 

Stay tuned for more #DBlogWeek posts this week!
