Today's WEGO prompt: Thank a few of your fellow Health Activists for what they have done. Call them out by name or twitter handle. Share your love.
There are so many wonderful people within the DOC that I don't know if I could just pick a few. There's Kim at the You Can Do This project, helping people know that diabetes doesn't have to keep you from doing what you love. There's Cherise, Scott, and George at DSMA (Diabetes Social Media Advocacy), doing their own advocacy but also coming together as an awesome team, leading Twitter chats and online radio shows. Of course I've mentioned Kerri at Six Until Me several times - my inspiration to blog.
We may not have the same type of diabetes, but that doesn't matter so much. These people and so many others have inspired me, encouraged me, challenged me. Without them, I wouldn't be the person I am today.
