The Small World of Type 1 Diabetes

Typically, when I get an unknown call on my cell phone, especially if it’s from out-of-state, I don’t pick it up.  But today, since I’m out of town, and have put out calls to some realtors that I desperately want a call back from, I picked up one of those “random” calls. And I guess, as they say, nothing is random or coincidental at all.

It was a person from GoDaddy just calling to make sure I was happy with the service they provide for this blog.  (I am.) As it turns out, the guy who called me, Jason, told me he is a T1 also!  He’s within a year of my age, and he also has had diabetes since his early 20s.

After he told me that, and I realized we had all that in common, I asked him if he also uses Dexcom’s CGM.  He doesn’t.  But he said he had been reading about it and thinking about it.  Anyone who has visited this blog before probably can tell, without diving in too deep- I’m a big fan of Dexcom and know that I have tighter control now than ever thanks in large part to the information it provides.

I let Jason know that, yep- so far so good with the GoDaddy hosting stuff… but way, way more importantly, I loved having an unexpected connection today with a fellow Type 1 person.
