You must have seen it. It's pretty obvious. At least to those in the Diabetes Online Community who frequent the Twitter World.
All portray a simple reality consisting of Three Themes:
3. Diabetes Makes Us Crazy Like a Fox. Like zombies lured to the smell of fresh brain, we are drawn to insanity for yet unknown reasons. The above two points about Bacon and Cats proves this, and we turn to the DOC and online universe to spread our insanity as broadly as possible. One's
Wow. What a phenomenon.
Some have recently pondered the connections between these three, wondering about the genesis of Twitter-talk surrounding them and what it means for the larger Diabetes World. That's a valid question that deserves more exploration. I'd say it's all about Community Spirit and being part of something bigger than ourselves.
Whether there's sanity there or not, really isn't the point - the point is we are Crazy. Someone should explore that and why Bacon and Cats are an apparent sympton or remedy to our craziness.
Somewhere, a scientist or university must be conducting a study about the connections between these three topics. You'd think it would be pretty justified, since there's already studies out there on everything else in the world you'd never think would be necessary. Like the ones I wrote about in 2007 that showed: "sedentary behavior linked to high blood sugar," and "Active Self-care Improves Blood Sugar Control." Seriously. C'mon.
Those all illicit a "No Sh...t, Sherlock" reaction, at least in my own little Corner Booth. You'd think a more intriguing review of Bacon, Cats, & Diabetes would be well worth the time and effort. To me, and really I can't be alone in this (or can I??), it only seems fitting that someone invest in funding a study on this. What a mindblowing research report that would be, full of potential for video and blog-writings and illustrations!
Short of a D-Cure, Closed Loop, or Artificial Pancreas, the results of this research could very well be one of the most beneficial and telling tales of our Diabetes Lives.
Just sayin'. Or maybe I'm just crazy. Whatever. I'm off to chase the cat and find some bacon.
