Portrait Post (#A4Amonth)

Today's Advocating for Another blog carnival prompt: Write a descriptive portrait of your community. Share qualities that make them, them – and include an image! (A photo or creative work of them!)

My community would be the DOC, diabetes online community. Although there are other diabetes groups, the DOC is the one I feel closest to than all the others.

The DOC contains patients, parents, spouses, children, caregivers, physicians, educators, and those that are seeking out information.

Sometimes we debate, maybe even argue. I try to stay out of discussions that involve which type is harder, whether each type should have their own name, or whether or not Type 2s "deserve" their diagnosis.

However when it comes right down to it, the DOC consists of a fun, loving, accepting, caring group of people from all over the world that have one goal - a cure for diabetes!
