#DBlogWeek Day 5: More than Diabetes

I think I put this in the survey last year? Sure seems like me! Plus- hello name of my blog! 🙂

Share an interest, hobby, passion, something that is YOU.  

Maybe I’ll go with Pokémon!? And Pokémon go? I’m still playing! (Yes, yes, yes I am. At level 31 currently. I’m going until I “catch ’em all.” Well the original 150!) I still have my Pokemon cards. I have a Pokemon N64 I still play Mario Kart on. I have the swag. Watch the show and movies still. Yeah. I love it. I also got the Build-a-bear Eevee! (Pokemon Go coming out was GREAT. SO MUCH SWAG for me to get my hands on). One of my best friends even got me a mug that says- “Relationship Status: Pokemon Go.” Heck yes!

I just love allllll of the “weird” and embrace it! I mean of course I have other interests- mostly fall under the weird category. I love being “weird” and “lame.” and more! 

If you want to explore how it relates to or helps with diabetes you can.   

I think embracing my weirdo side at a young age helped with diabetes and the rest of the world. Embracing how different I am. Taking things that people tried to make fun of me for and celebrate it instead. 

So- it relates in a way? 🙂

dblog week

More Than Diabetes – Friday 5/19– Lets wrap up the week by sharing a little more about ourselves, beyond the chronic illness we or our loved ones live with.  Share an interest, hobby, passion, something that is YOU.  If you want to explore how it relates to or helps with diabetes you can.  Or let it be a part of you that is completely separate from diabetes, because there is more to life than just diabetes!  (This topic is a suggestion from the 2016 #DBlogWeek survey.)

You can find the other posts for today, here

andddd- here’s the participant list!

 

Hey you! Yes, you! 

Let’s connect on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram (maybe even 2 or all of those!). 

If you enjoyed this post, please comment and share. I’d also appreciate your feedback.

and of course-don’t forget to keep up with “There’s More to the Story” via email! (Right sidebar towards the top).

We’ll both be glad you did! -Mindy
