During the year and a half since I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I’ve often said that I see that diagnosis as a blessing in disguise. If it weren’t for my going to the doctor for diabetes related problems, the congestive heart failure wouldn’t have been found, and I probably wouldn’t be writing this post. The fact that I am here is a blessing in and of itself, but there have been so many more.
My diagnosis lead me to the diabetic online community, and the awesome people, blogs, and other websites that make up the community. And it lead to the creation of this blog, which has allowed me to share my story with people from all over the country, and even around the world. This blog, and my interactions with others in the community, have lead to another opportunity, too.
Some of you may have seen my tweet last night that I had just submitted my first post for Blogabetes, and some inquired as to what that was all about. Well, a while back, I was contacted by dLife and was extended an invitation to join their team of bloggers. I accepted, of course. And now that the paperwork and setup is out of the way, I’m at the starting point of this new opportunity, and as excited as can be.
Now, don’t worry, My Diabetic Heart isn’t going anywhere; I’m going to be blogging in both places. I’m thankful to have been blessed with another opportunity, and to know that I’m definitely in someones good graces.

Thanks Ashley! 🙂
@mydiabeticheart Good job, o bloggy role model 🙂
@rpederse Thanks my friend.
I fully agree with you Mike. I’ve often said that diabetes is one of the best things that’s ever happened to my health. It sounds crazy to a lot of people, but I can’t imagine anything that requires a more intimate and sustained awareness of the effect of EVERYTHING on one’s body. And of course there are other benefits as well. Glad you’re making the best of things, I’ll look forward to the new blog. Are the two going to have different themes?
Congrats on the dLife gig!!! 🙂
Great news and opportunity, Mike! Looking forward to seeing your insight over that at D-Life, too! There’s so much to check out in the DOC these days that I don’t get over there as much as I should, but this will help me remember!
Congrats on the new gig! I saw your posts on dLife…very cool!
