Twitter Monday: Diabetes Daily, D-rap battle results and more

There was so many different things happening over this past week on twitter.  I am going to try to cover them all. 


George (@ninjabetic) wrote a blog titled “Blame Diabetes” !   The post was great.  If you haven’t read it, please do. blamedTo sum it all up…PWD’s (people with diabetes) and Type 3 diabetic’s often blame themselves for every thing diabetes related.  I can’t blame diabetes for everything but  for anything diabetes related why not?  George created a twitter hashtag #blamediabetes.  If you are having a bad diabetes day–tweet it, don’t hold it in.  Please use #blamediabetes hashtag.   I hope to see diabetes trend one day, wouldn’t you?

    Great wrap up! (oops – pun not intented!) There is a lot going on in the diabetes community these days!

    Thanks for the Diabetes Daily Challenge plug. It’s been very effective at motivating me thus far. I can’t possibly fail after all those tweets about it. That would be…. embarrassing. 🙂

    And I LOVE the #blamediabetes tag. We’ve also joked about adding a “test before you post” warning on cranky threads on our site. 🙂

    You let G-Money get the best of you?! I am so disappointed. What happened? Did you just crumble under the pressure or what? Sigh… SMH.
