I scrolled through this Sunday's PostSecret and this postcard submission jumped out at me because I saw diabetes written in invisible ink underneath that frosting. (Also, the photo permalink URL included "onbackdiabetestype1forever," so that was a bit of a hint.) And I realized, thankfully, that I don't hold any secrets about diabetes, because I've had the good fortune of this community to help me feel supported and empowered enough to deal with all my diabetes demons openly and unabashedly.
I've had a few ideas for a non-diabetes related PostSecret postcard in my head for a few years now, and I took these pink cookies as a sign that 2011 is as good a time as any to let some things go. PostSecret is kind of like Pandora's box, only the secrets that are released come from inside of you. Like blogging, it's a unique kind of free therapy, and who can't use that every now and again?
Thanks for the inspiration, diabetes postcard writer.
