Day 6. "u have been blogging for a while, what is your favorite sentence or blogpost that you have ever written?  Is it diabetes related or just life related?  If you are a new blogger and don't have a favorite yet, tell us what motivated you to start sharing your story by writing a blog?  (Thank you Laddie of Test Guess and Go for suggesting this topic.)"

I can't pick.  I have more than 100 blogs to choose from but I'll be honest, I don't like my writing.  I write because I have to.  It's cathartic.  I journal.  It's like my very own diabetes diary.  I really think that no one will read it when I'm writing.  It works best for me.  I blog because this disease and my boys' diagnoses changed all our lives and those first scary days and weeks it was the blogs, forums, the words on the Internet I turned to for support, tips, understanding, and comfort.  I turned to the people who get it.  They live it.  So now i write because I have to.  I'm driven.  I hope it might help someone the way those first words I found helped me.
