If you cracked open the Mills-Peninsula Healthpoint magazine's summer 2009 issue, and didn't get too distracted by all those yummy recipes, you may have stumbled across an interview on page 10. Yep, that's me, and if you were curious enough about my blog to check it out, welcome!
There's an interesting story behind the article. On February 11, 2009, I sent a letter to Jenny Ruhl, thanking her for her Blood Sugar 101 book and accompanying web site (and for her role in likely having saved my eyesight or a limb or two). She responded:
"Do pass on what you've learned to other people it might help. Word of mouth is the only way this news will ever reach so many of the people who need it."
Later that same day came what I call a "woooo-woooooo" moment: I received a call from my CNE at Mills-Peninsula, asking if I would mind sharing my story for their Healthpoint Magazine! Would I?!?! Even if I hadn't received the message from Jenny, it's what I aspire to do: show others the possibility of thriving in the face of type 2 diabetes, just as it was shown to me. Many thanks and kudos to Angela Anderson for her wonderful writing and to Paul Kitagaki, Jr. for the great photo. (And to both for making the process lots of fun!)
I hope you enjoy my blog, and please consider checking out some of the folks on my blog roll. There are lots of inspiring people out there writing some fantastic blogs.
