I have a really good piece of advice for you. Google yourself. Google your name, google your email address(es), see what comes up. It might surprise you.
I google myself every couple months to see what shows up. I don't like it when websites post my home address or info like that, and if I see it show up, I email them and ask them to remove me from their site, which they always do.
It's also funny to find out that others have the same name as you and interesting stuff comes up. Tonight I found out that a porn star shares my first and last name. THAT was interesting.
What was also interesting when I googled my name is that I found a link to a book that my story is going to be in: http://books.google.com/books?id=7E9sFW2eBZMC&pg=PT234&lpg=PT234&dq=nikki+coar&source=bl&ots=1sTwgsPnfr&sig=qp2d3vjoIt3T3TXaCdfT_2DSKeA&hl=en&sa=X&ei=Sy7JUOiTPKaoywHIzID4DA&ved=0CEQQ6AEwBA
Only parts of the story are shown. I can't wait to see the whole story when the book comes out. And I can't wait to read about other's stories. It's a book about eating well with diabetes, but I contribute how to eat with diabetes AND celiac. When you have both it can be a little challenging.
Sorry this is short. I just finished the tweetchat on #dsma tonight. I get so pumped talking with others with D; it's pretty awesome.
- I'm a glass-half-full type 1 diabetic/celiac with a C5 spinal cord injury and life-altering allergies. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, grave's disease and celiac disease in 2010, a spinal cord injury resulting in a spinal cord fusion at the C5 level in 2012 (resulting in chronic pain and life-long physical restrictions) and bad ass allergies in 2013. I believe having a positive attitude is the only way to live with disease and injury. I also believe that life doesn't have to be PERFECT for it to be WONDERFUL. Disease and injuries are expensive, so I live a frugal yet full life (I'm a fru"GAL"!) Please know I am NOT any sort of professional and am not giving professional advice. This is just my blog; my day-to-day story.
