Back in the swing of things

I'm back after a brief hiatus with real life involving broken appliances and misbehaving cars. I am now the proud owner of a washer and dryer that actually will wash and dry clothes, and a car that matches my insulin pump - who knew that Ping made a colour in Sonic Metallic Blue! I thought it was just blue. (side note to Animas: don't miss time-honoured marketing opportunities). Anyway, I digress. I'm back in the swing of things, and that's what counts!

Anyway, today's InkStain'D has some awesome articles and blog features, not to be missed:

First off, I'd like to note that I'm now a member of Diabetes Advocates. Not sure if I can do them justice, but I'm there, and hope I can make a real dent in the Diabetes Community. With May focusing on depression, the Diabetes Advocates are raising awareness about the link between living with diabetes and depression. Check out the post Diabetes & Depression: Places to Get Support. 

In particular, I really loved the speech given by Marina Keegan, The Opposite of Loneliness. Admittedly, this is not about diabetes per se, but a powerful speech given at her Yale commencement. Bittersweet to be certain, but some important life lessons here, addressing change.

Also, a special nod to my husband Larry, who some of you know as @Maindog101, and who is now sporting an alter ego at @MaindogSound on Twitter. He launched his own blog Maindog Sound a couple of weeks ago, and, well, the aforementioned life thing happened, so it's now at InkStain'D.

But there's so much more, so please visit InkStain'D today!
