Because it’s completely normal to leave work an hour early to catch a train to Philadelphia to moderate a Twitter chat and to give as many hugs as possible. Even if it ultimately means getting back on a train home a few hours later and getting to sleep by 2am.
If ever it were appropriate to say “it makes sense if you have diabetes”, this is the time.
These people are my extended family, even if that night was the first time we’ve met. That’s the impact of the diabetes community, of this family of strangers.
I really wish I thought to take more pictures. That’s something I can improve on in the future.

Chris, I’m so glad you were able to come down for that. Not only did you help us a great deal, but you helped make it a magical night for everyone. Thank you.
Hey, I know those people! It was great to see you in Philly! That was one of the most fun DSMA’s I’ve done in a really long time. Granted, it’s one of the only DSMA’s I’ve done in a really long time…but it was still the most fun!
I love seeing so many familiar faces in the picture 🙂 And you are quite devoted to make that trip in one day! I’m bummed I missed it.
Thank you for coming to Philly to moderate and hold down the twitter chat for us! Not only did you moderate the chat, you also asked some great questions. You are amazing and I really appreciate you!
You did a great job moderating that night!
