An public health physician who, through poetry, tears, and a pinch of humor, reflects on her life living in the world of medicine, patient care, and whimsical daydreaming.
As 2018 comes to a close, let us usher in the New Year by coming together once again to connect and to support each other’s blogs. You all made the last Meet & Greet a great success; let us make this one even more wonderful.
– What’s the Point? –
To share your blog, find new blogs, and connect with other bloggers.
– What to Do –
- Leave a comment with a brief description of your blog along with a link to your blog (be sure to copy the entire blog address so it shows up as a hyperlink to allow others to easily visit you).
- Take a minute to visit some of the other blogs listed in the comments (Don’t be shy—make your presence known by reaching out and saying hi!).
- Feel free to share or reblog this post to spread the word.
- Bookmark this post and revisit as many times as you would like to see who else has joined the party.
Remember, one of the best things about blogging is being able to connect with other bloggers…and the best way to do that is simply to visit the blogs that interest you and to show your support through liking, commenting, and/or following. So go ahead and show some love; you will be surprised at the connections you make!
With that said, let’s have a great New Year’s Meet & Greet!

In this post, I will discuss one of the more “advanced” methods of meal planning: the Carbohydrate Counting method. An easier (albeit less precise) method is the Create Your Plate method, so be sure to check out that post as well if you haven’t yet, along with the rest of the posts in the Diabetes Series!
