Kim Vlasnik of the Diabetes Online Community (or #DOC on twitter) gave this riveting speech at Stanford’s MedicineX about the hard parts of living with Type 1 Diabetes. Word for word, she expressed my fears and frustrations – noting that while we need insulin to survive, we need our community even more. We need those who can say with deep empathy “Me too.”
I am ever so grateful for her brave talk.
