What Makes the DOC Special?

What makes the Diabetes Online Community (DOC) so special?

Understanding, support, encouragement, empowerment, companionship, and love.

The Internet has been around for a while, and since the early days there have been ways to communicate about diabetes. Mailing lists, forums, online message boards, you name it, it’s been there.

But there is something different about what is happening now.

We have all worked very hard to nurture the loving and supportive environment that we are a part of.  It’s infectious.  And it’s good.

Everyone is welcome, and encouraged to come inside.  But you must leave your ego at the door.  Promise to be yourself, be honest, and do everything in your power to help others.  You’ll get back more than you can ever give, and everyone wins.

Love breeds love, even through the hardest of times.

Thank you.
