Diabetesgeek has reached 6,000 views! I know! I started this blog in Feb 16' with the aim of inspiring, sharing and generally just being brutally honest about both the good and the bad parts of being a type one diabetic.
It was only the other day I celebrated 300 views, I swear! It's so ridiculous, thank you if you read, and I'm assuming if you've ended up here that you do. ;)
Considering I lived 13 years without ever (really) mentioning my diabetes, to have people listen and care about what I have to say feels really awesome, on both a personal and community level. Thanks to diabetesgeek I am now (hypothetically) surrounded by some of the most strong and independent people I know. I'm not cool enough for the gbdoc party people!
I mean for some people, 6,000 views is nothing, but for an 18 year old from Portsmouth with a very select audience I think that's pretty good going.
Plus, I am a person despite my diabetes so I think it's important to reflect that here on diabetesgeek.
You're all fab and I don't want to get emotional so toodle-pip!
