What Do You Want to Talk About?

Last night’s #dsma chat was a particularly good one, because its intention was to generate discussion and feedback about what people in the diabetes online community (DOC) want to talk about.

Over the last ten years, the diabetes community has created some effective and supportive roots on (in?) the Internet. We are a vocal and passionate group of people (living with diabetes ourselves or caring for someone touched by diabetes) and the community seems to help people who are looking for their peers, looking to change something, or simply looking to share their stories. No matter what your level of involvement might be, the DOC is a place where you can find your footing.

So this question of “What do you want to talk about?” is a great one because it can help serve the needs/ hit the goals/ scratch the itch.

The evolution of the DOC is constant, and powerful, and we all have a chance to influence and shape it.  What’s important to you?  What do you want to talk about?

  1. I am sorry I missed the chat. I was busy talking about an issue I wanted to talk about. I hope I am forgiven. LOL

    To Stacy Simm’s post. The community has been a source of what is next and what pitfalls will our family face for me for a long time. I very much value the candor about the emotional struggles from experienced T1D adults.

    Kudos to her for asking. Kudos for helping show those emotional issues to Kerri, Scott, George, another Scott, Manny, other Scott, Christel. yet another Scott, a few Mikes, that other Scott……..

  2. A very appropriate post on this day. And I loved your suggestion to help people new to DSMA get welcomed (welcomed sounds better than acclimated, right?).
