Re: [IP] single and diabetic



RoseLea,  I have been a type 1 for 41 years.  had a very good supportive
husband who took good care of me.  I lost him in in 1981.  He was in good
health, but had a heart attack.  I now have  BF who has been with me for 16
years and he has also taken good care of me.  Its like God sent him to me.
He has been through an aorta replacement and triple by-pass with me and has
never left my side.  I am hoping to get on the pump when medicare says ok.
I am really scared about it as I am a very active person........
Barbara
