If you have found this blog, saying Welcome does not really seem appropriate. I know you wish you weren't surfing the internet for diabetes. I felt the same.

A big part of me wishes I were not writing about diabetes, nor did I anticipate to become so opinionated or informed on the subject, but it happened. In 2010, my son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.

It wasn't really part of the plan… Correction - it was not part of the plan, but it happened. It is not always easy, but I think we are all doing okay, and I hope we continue to do so.

Why the Middle East? I happen to live in Dubai. I don't think that living in the Middle East makes mine or my son's diabetic experience any more unique or challenging than it does elsewhere in the developed world.

I hope you stick around, or read something you like. Feel free to comment and join the conversation, subscribe or follow this blog by liking the Facebook page Diapoint.

Please note: This blog does not give medical advice. I am opinionated, and I share my experiences, but the first rule of diabetes is to follow up with your doctor and/or nurse educator about your care, diagnosis or medication. If you do not have a medical practitioner that is helping you find your way through this crazy world, then do not give up until you find the right one.

This Blog Has Moved!

Dear Followers of Diabetic In The Middle East,

I am happy to share the exciting news with you that this blog has moved.

When I started this blog over three and a half years ago, I was not planning to do much other than share my experience in the hopes it might help someone else in a similar situation.

Well, after several years, many presentations, much advocacy and the burning desire to do more than just share my story to help people, I created DiapointME.

I actually created DiapointME a few years ago, but it was only just over a year ago that I left my corporate life to devote my full attention to it.

DiapointME is a place for those who are touched by diabetes – whether that be someone with diabetes, or someone who loves someone with diabetes.

I hope you will visit the new site and have a look around. There is much more to come than just the blog. There will be a shop, recipes and more...

I look forward to seeing you there!

- Pam
