Welcome to the thread! As diabetics, we often have more than our fair share of pain, frustration, diverse medical issues, neuropathic complications, dietary issues, medication conundrums, negativity and depression to deal with, on top of dealing with diabetes itself. And as a result, it's all too easy to get bogged down in a spiralling vortex of bleakness and despair. And that is a dark place for anyone to be for long. This is a new thread intended to give us a little respite from that relentless negativity and an opportunity to celebrate all that is positive in our lives. Please feel free to post anything that made you smile, or gave you a warm, fuzzy feeling, no matter how brief. It can be something personal that happened to you today, or something you saw, or it could be a happy memory, a beautiful picture, an uplifting poem, a funny comment or joke, or simply the fact that you watched the sun rise this morning. It could be a piece of writing, a drawing, or a photograph. Let's make this a place where anyone can come to feel better, no matter how briefly. A place to take time out to bask in the sunshine for a while and reflect on the good things that we can sometimes forget are out there. There's only one rule: let's leave anything negative at the door - check it in with your hat and coat!
