I'm a huge fan of social media. Last year I was quoted in USA Today talking about why. One thing I told the reporter is that, for me, Twitter is a way to connect with people I haven't met, but with whom I have much in common (as opposed to Facebook, which is a great way to reconnect with people I already know).
Some of the most valuable connections I've made online are with the diabetes community. So when we got Benny's new pump in the mail, I felt like a friend was inside the box! Ok, that sounds creepy, but you'll understand when you watch:
You can find Kerri's blog here. We've never met, she doesn't know me. But diabetes is a condition that can make you feel pretty lonely sometimes, and knowing there are other people out there dealing with the same situations really does help.
