  2. AWEsometastic. Wrote a blog post today. :-)

    Btw, the url box, submitting a link, only 50 character limit... possible to change? Just a thought.

    You ROCK, Kim. TOtally. Thank you, thank YOU for doing this and for being You!!! xoxo

  3. DOH! Link title, not url. I'm a dork. Sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hey Crystal! Simply Linked doesn't give me a lot of customization options, unfortunately. :( I think 50 characters is the most it can do.

  5. So many awesome links already on the first day!!! I can't wait to post mine... hopefully tomorrow if the technology will cooperate with me! SO excited for this much-needed project!

  7. So far, I've watched two videos and cried three times (disproportional I know, but still!). Written the script for mine, waiting for some pics to be emailed!

  9. Sarah and I enjoyed watching several videos yesterday. It really is amazing to see other folks stories and how similar and different they all are. I recorded a video of Sarah yesterday, and hope to have it ready to post within the next day or two. Love it!

  16. You Can Do This has pretty much become my new mantra lately, and I feel like WHOLE new attitude about diabetes. I can't really say anything that everybody hasn't already said, but Thanks you (though that hardly seems to cover it) will work for now :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks for putting this project together. I'm happy to have been the 17th person to contribute and I look forward to watching all the videos. I hope we get at least 100 videos.

  18. Kim,
    this is amazing at how many more people we keep getting to add videos and blog posts! i'm literally crying seeing some of the videos hearing stories! I'm getting ready to post my first ever video post, and you have inspired me (along with Kerri and Ginger with their super DOC video work) to finally venture into the vlog world... I suppose it's time! I'll be posting as soon as my technologically inept self can get it all together! :) (dHugs) and you are AWESOME!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Kim - This project is amazing. It's amazing how stepping out from the shadows and telling one's story can help someone who's struggling. Thank you. Diabetes can be a dark, dark world and it's so nice to know we're NOT alone!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thank you for bringing this idea to life. You're an inspiration to me!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Every video I have watched is awesome and has made me cry.

    I love this project so much! Thanks a million Kim!

    ReplyDelete
  22. On days like today, after weeks like this past one, it can get overwhelming. This project gives me hope.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have never during my 22 years with type 1 felt that I couldn't do it. As much as I hate it at times, it is who I am and I truly feel I am better because of it. Hope, determination, and perseverence make all the difference.

    ReplyDelete
  24. OMG, so many incredible posts! We can do this

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for orchestrating this Kim. It's quite amazing, and I'm continually blown away by each new video. I hope once I get my video done that it touches others as much as theirs have touched me.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I want more videos! If you're on the fence, please make one!

    ReplyDelete

  32. Hey Kim, I have tried submitting my project a couple of times and I don't see it on here. Is there something I am doing wrong? Any tips would be appreciated. What a wonderful idea!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Reyna - A couple of people have had the same issue, and I wish I knew why! I'd be happy to add your link myself, and see if that will work. Thanks for letting me know! :)

  52. This project got Caleb to open up for the first time. I think he's finally at the age where he can formulate his feelings in a way to properly convey them. It's been great to get inside his mind. Is it wrong to post 2 videos?

    ReplyDelete
  53. I still want to contribute a video....although my available technology to do so is quite limited. Still, I've loved being a viewer, hearing everyone's stories and learning from their experiences.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Have enjoyed watching the video's and reading the blogs. I'm newly diagnosed 5 1/2 months now I will post something when I feel I have something to contribute. I love the Lauren's Hope ID bracelets, would love to win one.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I've watched a lot of the videos. And it amazes me how similiar we all are in so many aspects. Definitely confirms that we are not alone.

    This project will help people forever!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love all the videos...to hear everyone talk about their ups and downs is truly inspiring!

  64. My diabetes could use a little bling this week. No time to wallow w/ice cream so color on my wrist to perk me up would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Such a great project. So many stories, some similar to mine, some very different but the thing that makes this project what it is, is that they are all here to tell their story. It tells a lot about what this community is and how strong we all are. I am so happy to be a part of it and am so proud of everyone who has shared their story.

    ReplyDelete
  66. This project is so fantastic. I cannot explain how much this means even to me, a person with diabetes for 7 years. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  67. This is a wonderful project and when I watched the videos (at work fo coures) I found myself reaching for the tissues nad tearing up something fierce. What an emotional moment that created. Thank you for all of your hard work on this and to everyone else who participated. You all rock!
