Just two short bloglettes today for your enjoyment. Firstly, some of you may be vaguely aware that as well as running a top quality blog, we also have a forum at http://forum.shootuporputup.co.uk. The Shoot Up forum quietly ticks along and to be harsh, but fair, not a great deal happens over there. Personally, I quite like it because I’ve configured the forum so flashing emoticons, pictures and inane signatures can’t be displayed – bliss!
Anyway, while there are infinitely better diabetes forums out there – http://www.diabetessupport.co.uk is a good example – occasionally the soaraway Shoot Up forum has a few gems of goodness. A case in point as a long running thread at http://forum.shootuporputup.co.uk/topic.php?id=2 describing how we were diagnosed with diabetes and memories of that fateful, heart-sinking day when we discovered we were a member of pancreatically-challenged club. Anyway, it’s a good read if you ignore my stupid comments about spies and stuff on the first page.
Secondly, our chum Shelly at Circle D has blatantly asked us to plug her new eBook “Living with Diabetes 24 hours a Day – A Personal Journey” which is available here. As we’re hoping that Shelly will invite us on one the yachts she’ll inevitably buy with the profits, we’re more than happy to give her said plug.
Shelly also runs Circle D and organises diabetes-related socials down in sunny Kent and she is a font of diabetes knowledge and support – so check out her site and buy her book, so she can become the colossus of the diabetes world that she richly deserves to be! Rrraaaagh!
