Diabetes Social Media Burnout

Today is Diabetes Social Media Burnout Blog Day.  And guess what? My mind is extra crispy right now.

I’ve been trying to find the words for a post on how I’m feeling, but they elude me.  My dear friend, Mike Hoskins, suggested using an image instead.  Smart guy, that one.   Why the hell didn’t I think of that?

So, here you go.  This is how I’m feeling today.  Like a candle that has been blown out.  The flame gone, yet embers remain that could be rekindled with some effort.  I just don’t have it in me today.


Others in the DOC have approached this far more eloquently than I have, and I very much appreciate their efforts.  You can find them here.  http://www.diabetesdaily.com/blog/2015/09/diabetes-social-media-burnout-blog-day/

    Sending you my best, Mike. No need to jump back into DOC or D-Advocacy if you’re not up to it, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Living with this is tough enough. Take the time you need, and make sure you’re time is being spent in whatever way you want.

    Great analogy to express your feelings. I hope your time out is worthwhile and that you get your spark back soon!
