The Diabetes Online Community or DOC, as it is affectionately called, is a plethora of talented, colourful people, each bringing something uniquely his or her own to the diabetic table. This is an amazing group of people to be connected with.
I recently became aware of yet another talented member of this incredible, diverse neighbourhood. Chris Bishop is the author of Type 1 Tidbits and he has created a really cool blogroll. Each blogger listed has a superhero avatar - the message being that we are all superheroes, those of us who fight the good fight with diabetes every single day. I can get on board with that.
Chris is not only a talented person with type 1 diabetes, he is also incredibly perceptive! He's never met me in person yet here's my superhero avatar:
That's me in the purple get-up with the hot pants and the bitchin' boots! How badass am I ?!
It's like looking in a mirror.
