Favorites and Motivations

Not feeling to great this weekend so I am a day late on yesterday’s post. The topic is (was?):

If you have been blogging for a while, what is your favorite sentence or blogpost that you have ever written? Is it diabetes related or just life related? If you are a new blogger and don’t have a favorite yet, tell us what motivated you to start sharing your story by writing a blog? (Thank you Laddie of Test Guess and Go for suggesting this topic.)

I was debating between two posts of which one to pick and I decided to go with Managing Blood Sugar with Gastroparesis. I picked that one because I still get people sending me messages about it. It is very sad but most doctors tend to write you off when you have a problem and don’t try to help you figure things out.

Salad gifA lot of people don’t really understand that some foods are worse than others to digest and no one has ever talked to them about that. Broccoli and oranges are the two hardest foods to digest and I once talked to someone that was eating broccoli every day with gastroparesis. No one ever bothered to ask her what she was eating.  I miss having my veggies every day but being sick in my stomach every day is not worth it.

Like so many other things diabetes related, I think we learn a lot of from each other. Patient experience trumps all!

6th Annual Diabetes Blog Week


  1. Whenever I read of someone having issues with gastroparesis, I always send them to your blog. And I know that other do too. I hope you keep blogging because you are a very valuable voice in the DOC, but if not, I’ll see you on FB.

  2. Thanks for sharing that blog post. I probably wouldn’t have found it otherwise because it was from 2010 and it was so great to read and be on the lookout for if I start to have issues as well.
