Diabetic Living magazine has this thing on their Facebook page where they have a friend of the week. A couple of weeks ago I was chosen as friend of the week and the editor just emailed me asking if I'd like to sign a photo release form so that my picture can appear in the next issue of the magazine!

It's going to be the picture I have as my profile image with my PWD Type 2 and how long I've been diabetic.. I'm so excited!

Congrats, I'm excited for you and I'm looking forward to seeing you ( my new friend ) in the magazine. I hope the article turns out just like you want it to.

When is the next issue coming to the stands? I want to make sure I get a copy so I can see my friend…sure am proud of you!!

The issue on stands now is out until June, I believe. I'm going to be in the summer issue, so I'd assume sometime in July it will be out. When I get a date I'll let you know.

I'm going to be on the very last page with everyone else who has their meter held high. It's part of the "We're Living It" campaign.

Thank you all! I'm really excited about it. One of my replies to a Facebook status was in an issue, but it was just my name. This is completely different!
