I was asked to host this month's Best of the 'Betes Blogs. This just in: I’m never ever ever doing it again.
Having to choose one nominee over another was pure torture for me.
Let’s have a moment of silence for my nerves.
I asked Sara if choosing everyone was an option.
She just laughed at me. Like “EVIL” laughed at me, and said she had faith I could do it. She even threw the words, “YOU CAN DO THIS!” in my face.
Maybe she was right…but let it be known, I can’t even decide what kind of dressing to put on my salad. Balsamic? Ranch? Blue Cheese? Thousand? They are all wonderful! Just like these blog posts. This was way harder than I anticipated. Obviously though, once I realized I wasn’t deciding on the Nobel Peace Prize, I went with my gut and made the hard choices.
Without further ado: Below please find the Best of the Betes Blogs for March 2014!
BEST USE OF HUMOR:
Kim from Texting my Pancreas for coming up with the ingenious “Starch Madness.” How do you treat a low? Check out the brackets HERE.

Zakary at Raising Colorado for standing up to the boxes and making grab and go set changes a thing!

Bennet at Your Diabetes May Very and his use of the phrase, “Meth or Insulin.”

Goes to Jess at the T1D Active Living Website, where she engaged a MLB player within the twitterverse and soon after spoke to him ON. THE. PHONE.

BEST STORY OF A D MISTAKE:
If you happen to have Type 1 Diabetes, and you happen to be getting married, you have probably gone through every single possible scenario that could go wrong diabetes-wise at the wedding. But what if what went wrong, went wrong with your brother, and not yourself. Katie at Diabetic Advocate blogs about another DOC save!
BEST MOTIVATIONAL POST:
Surfice Fine. She mustered up the courage to connect with a complete strang(er) about diabetes. How many times have I had the same conversation in my head?
BEST DIABETES ART:
A flow chart by Sarah at Insulin Pens Don’t Have Ink. Follow it if you have an opinion about someone’s diabetes. Handy when you’re in a pinch!
