Sweet in Seattle.

You are looking at the new 'Seattle Diabetes Examiner'. Recently I was 'hired' to write for

I say 'hired' because I only get paid based on readers. Hopefully I will generate enough readers to make it count. Anyway, part of my agreement was that I write about Diabetes in Seattle. Events, fundraisers, news, whatevs. The thing is...and I'm surprised by it...there is rarely anything happening in this town regarding Diabetes.

I don't understand. Isn't there anything sweet in Seattle? Other than myself? *teehee! ;)

I mean....

ADA has a local office.
JDRF has a local chapter.

There is the PNDRI, the Benaroya Diabetes Center , and the Swedish Medical Center has an education center. These are only a FEW of the resources available here in Seattle.

Seattle not only has one of the highest rates of Type 1 Diabetes in the country, it is also forefront in Diabetes research. So, I have to admit, I'm a little surprised that there are not more D-related activities going on. What am I supposed to write about?! Ugh.

In any event, like I mentioned. I get paid based on clicks. You don't necessarily have to read my outstanding, witty and gripping wordsmithing....I'll leave that to your discretion. But, my purse and I would appreciate a simple click or ten. So...clickity, click, click, click.

Seattle Diabetes Examiner.

Have your friends and family click, too. Email random strangers and ask for clicks. I'm not proud. I'm hungry....and broke.

If anyone is aware of any Seattle Diabetes events or you, yourself, are taking part in an event, please send me a note. I will gladly promote and advertise!

Also, since I'm in the mood to promote myself, there is a donation tab to your left. Come on, I know you see it. 'CANDY COATED DONATIONS'...right there ---> On your right ----> Directly under my mug ---->

I have been unemployed for 5 months. I have not had health benefits for the same amount of time. Since I have not yet found a job nor have I hit Mega Millions, any help would be appreciated as I do sincerely enjoy living....and eating.

Many thanks!

  1. Welcome to this side of the pond! Unfortunately I live near Spokane, not Seattle - but it's always nice when someone is "close." No, there really aren't any diabetes related events around here. It's irritated me for years. In Spokane there are only ever 2 - 1 is a JDRF walk for the cure the other is a local clinic funded "Diabetes Day."So maybe something like a "diabetes day" would be worth checking into to see if anything like that exists in Seattle to help up your event number.... ....anyways, I hope the money starts rolling in a bit quicker for you!!
