  • Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1980, started blogging in 2004, good Lord has allowed me to make a living through social media. Paying most of my important bills, most of the time. Doing something that fills my heart.
  • 3 words: Expert, Brilliant, DedicatedWe (PWD’s) are often a little crazy, very emotional, and can have a lot of undirected anger looking for a place to vent.- Amazed and so grateful that you would dedicate your lives to helping me live mine.
  • What is social media?Why is it important?How can you use it?
  • Listed a GENEROUS 40 hours per year with some sort of clinical help. Total number of hours per year, 24 x 365 = 8760
  • Postgraduate Medicine, Volume 121, Number 5, September 2009. Ronald D. Coffen, PhD, The 600-Step Program for Type 1 Diabetes Self Management in Youth: The Magnitude of the Self-Management Task
  • This applies to ALL patient types. You get women who are pregnant together and this happens, people who deal with X and this happens, people of almost any common similarities.
  • http://dsmalive.com/2012/03/09/after-thoughts-michelle-litchman/Impressed with accuracy of information
  • http://youtu.be/nrm7z0owxoc – not giving medical advice. Talking about good ways to deal with a problem we often encounter.
  • Value for you, grow your understanding. Connect and relate. Value for your patients, fill the gaps, increase education, break apart some of the isolation, emotional support, connect and relate.
