Every now and again I catch little snippets of things here at DC and think “hmm, that’s a great idea, maybe we could….”
In one thread Jigsaw thought it would be a nice afternoon to have a cookout with our community (if we used his neighbor’s bathroom of course), and I thought that would be fun. I know one of the woodworking sites I follow often has local get-togethers and swaps, and often posts pictures the following Monday.
After a quick search I also see several have offered up the idea of a diabetic cooking show/channel. I also thought that would be great if produced correctly.
So with all the reality TV and “docudramas” out there now like Deadliest Catch, Hoarders, Little People-Big World, and on and on….. Could we put our (not so) little DC community on The Learning Channel?
I envision a variety show not just about diabetes, but coping with it (or not in some cases).
I could see featuring 3 or 4 of our members each week – maybe bring a film crew to your kitchen while you cook up a healthy meal for your family while they protest “broccoli again!” Or follow you to a doctor’s appointment when you thought you were doing good only to find your A1c was higher this time. An afternoon on the boat with Jigsaw? Or maybe some T1 wisdom from Dietcherry over a game of eight ball? Maybe even feature some educators and professionals on what they see as the state of diabetes currently, while still sprinkling in weight loss tips, emotional checks and everything else we deal with here.
In any case, I thought it would be a nice docudrama of our DC community and its members, how we all help each other, and why we seem to be so much more effective than a simple support group.
Who knows, we might even produce a few new stars! Thoughts?
