I told you I was running out of things to say…

After a long break, I finally feel as if I can carry on doing this blog, and actually have something worthwhile to say. Well, kinda.

The thing is,  diabetes literally comes in to every part of my life. So why is it so hard to think of things to write? I think my anxiety comes in to it quite a bit. A couple of negative comments, and I just go into myself. I can handle constructive criticism, I welcome it in fact. But the odd email telling me “You deserve to be diabetic” or that “your writing is rubbish”, it’s enough to make me want to just shut it all out for a while.

However, I’m feeling quite productive today, so I’m seizing the opportunity and I’m throwing myself right back in there.

Something I’ve been considering for a while is setting up a Twitter page, kind of like a support page for diabetics, friends and family of diabetics, and anyone who is just curious to learn a bit more. I’ve finally convinced myself to do it, and whilst I’m not sure if it will take off, I thought it was worth giving things a go. On Facebook, there are so many support pages which I’m really lucky to be a part of, but it seems as though there is a bit of a gap in the market on Twitter. I’m looking at posting facts, memes, any submissions from followers etc. I’ve even been looking into selling some bits through it, t shirts, mugs etc. It might flop, but it might help someone, and in that case, it will be worth it.

It’s very new, I’m yet to do much on there, but in the coming days, I’m hoping to revamp my blog and get the Twitter page going. I might even do an Instagram, but let’s face it, I’m getting ahead of myself now.

Thank you everyone who is kind enough to read and support this blog, it might not seem like much, but it can be very daunting to just put your life out there on the internet for judgement, and I’m so grateful that the majority of the comments are also positive.

Much love, H x

  1. Hol why not just screenshot and upload their unredacted email address with their comment… or pass it to me and I’ll find their mother’s email address to let them know what they’ve “raised”.
    Enjoy reading your blog even though I’m not T1D I am more like “K” so I understand what it’s like. #shouldyoubeeatingthat lol
