It's become a Holiday Season tradition of ours to remind you all about an awesome eBook that the DOC helped us curate a few years back: Nuggets of Wisdom from the Diabetes Community.
The book was compiled from entries submitted to the first-ever DiabetesMine Holiday Survival Sweepstakes, in which hundreds of community members submitted their best advice for handling an assortment of holiday-related challenges, like holiday parties, exercising during the winter, travel, and avoiding too much food.
As you may know, participants in our 2013 'Aware-lidays' Giveaway also shared a bunch of great tips on these topics recently. This stuff is absolutely "evergreen," because these tips are always relevant, as long as we have diabetes, need to eat food, and need to get insulin into our flawed bodies. Grrr.
The eBook we complied back in 2009 was beautifully designed by online advocate Gina Capone, with editing help from our then-staffer Allison Nimlos and D-blogger Scott Johnson, plus a bunch of readers who submitted their advice and also photos to illustrate the eBook -- thank you all! It was a real community effort.
