Great project!! :)) I LOVE this idea... I WILL do this!!
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
DOH! Link title, not url. I'm a dork. Sorry!
Hey Crystal! Simply Linked doesn't give me a lot of customization options, unfortunately. :( I think 50 characters is the most it can do.
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!
I love You Can Do This! So encouraging!
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!
LOVING all the linky links!!
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!Michelle Gonzalez
This is soooo nice - seeing, hearing and reading everyone's encouraging words.Thanks, Kim!
Kim, your video was truly helpful. Thank you SO MUCH for putting yourself out there and sharing. We Can Do This!!
This is a great project Kim. The videos are great and will be a great support system for people living with type 1. Thanks for taking that idea and making it reality!
This is such a good project - just wish I had time to see them all!!!having such a hard time lately posting comments!!http://himynameisbob-imainsulinpump.blogspot.com/April
This project is awesome and inspiring. Thanks for the opportunity!
So many awesome amazing inspiring videos. I love watching these. Esp when I am really down on D. Thank you so much!
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 :)
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.
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!
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!
Thank you for bringing this idea to life. You're an inspiration to me!
Every video I have watched is awesome and has made me cry.I love this project so much! Thanks a million Kim!
On days like today, after weeks like this past one, it can get overwhelming. This project gives me hope.
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.
OMG, so many incredible posts! We can do this
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.
I want more videos! If you're on the fence, please make one!
Gosh, my comment is embarrassing--I'm so demanding! Can you tell I'm excited about this project? ha! I forgot to thank you, Kim. Thank you very much!
What a great project - thank you so much for creating it and sharing with the world!
Thank you for allowing me to participate!
Love this! Thank you so much for organizing this project. Now I just need to get over the nerves and make a video of my own!
I love how many new people I'm finding through this project Kim!
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!
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! :)
I am so glad that I could participate! Thanks!!
Bean and I had such a great time doing our video!Thanks, again, for spearheading this! Such a great variety of stories with the same underlying message!
I'm here to enter the contest, and to thank you *all* for such a wonderful project that will impact many, many people.
I would love to win a Hope Paige bracelet! I'm needing a new bilingual one!
Hi Jasmine! I hope you'll come back and leave a comment on Thursday, when the contest is open. Thanks!
OK, I know that this project started a little while ago but I'm totally in...just a little behind. Love listening to and reading everyone's you can do its. Wonderful idea Kim!!
So happy everybody can do it. And we could do it even better with a stylish medical bracelet!
Yes, you absoulutely can do it!!!!
So many videos, sooo little time.
Best. Project. Ever!!! I need a little alone time to make my video, and with the boys being home for summer..."alone time" does not exist. But I will find my window! I CAN DO THIS!!!
Still working on the epilepsy version of this amazing project.Also, those bracelets are lovely.
So many videos!! I am "doing this" more and more with every one I watch. (and the bracelets are beautiful).THANKS!@!!
This is such an amazing project! I am working up my courage to record a contribution. Hoping CWD-FFL will boost my bravery

Oooo, love give aways! Bean is always in the market for another bracelet...7yr olds need their options!! ;)
I'm still not through watching all of the videos, and more keep getting posted... AWESOME! This project is super amazing wonderful, and the videos are super inspirational! I LOVE IT! :) Thanks kim! <3 :)
I have really enjoyed reading/watching the other submissions. Thank you so much for putting this together!
i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this project! thanks everyone! and you can do this! :)
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?
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.
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.
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!
Love all the videos...to hear everyone talk about their ups and downs is truly inspiring!
so many videos i love to watch secretly on my computer at work!
So incredible! Love the new videos. It's remarkable to hear from so many awesome people who survive almost everything with T1
Kim, so happy to have had the chance to get to know you IRL! I hope it's not a whole year before we see each other again. Keep up the great work on YCDT!!h
These videos are so inspiring! I hope to find the time to make one in the near future!
Thank you for letting me participate!
We are working on a video! Sweets is helping come up with ideas... she has a million things she wants to do and have me video her. So it's taking a bit... But it's so fun! And we both love watching the others! :)
All these really brave kids are making my cry twice as hard today. This is something pretty awesome, Kim. Thank you so much.
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.
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.
This project is so fantastic. I cannot explain how much this means even to me, a person with diabetes for 7 years. Thank you!
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!Amanda (T1 x 21 yrs)
I had a chance to talk about YCDTP at an ADA event last night. Such a great resource and so glad to be a part of it!
Love all the YCDTP videos and blogs, and I love the cute Med Id's would love to win one.
I know it sounds cheesy, but every time I watch a video it makes me feel like I've just made a new friend. Seriously, what an amazing project this has turned out to be. I can't thank you enough for strengthening the DOC!!
You should be so proud... this is an awesome thing you've started :)
This has become such a huge thing! This is definitely something to be proud of!
if i were a newly dx'd diabetic i would love for someone to tell me about this fabulous thing you have created!! i have had D for 36yrs, and i have watched/read each of the entries and loved them all. still trying to get mine together! hopefully soon!
I love watching these videos! Wow! So many people sharing. Did you even think it would get this big? Awesome!!!
Knowing the family out there "has my back" helps me to get through each and every day.
I love this project...has taken off beautifully! YOU can do this! Thanks for all you do Kim!
The DOC is awesome. Not only is it great to know I'm not alone but also that the community I belong to because of Diabetes is full of people who are strong, thriving, and overcoming adversity on a daily basis.
These videos are so amazing! Thank you!
Thank you so much for doing this!
Entering! Entering! I love this project so much! Now that the kids are in school maybe I can finally make my video!
I could so use a medical ID bracelet. Thanks for all that you do! Love this project!
Colleen makes me proud every day dxd Oct 3, 1999 at the tender age of 3years old. I know she Can -Do -This with the great support she gets from the DOC! Live well with Diabetes!
This is a really good site post
Thank you so much for putting this together!
Love this idea!! 3 Cheers!
