Re: [IP] Rude comments (continued)

here is the rudest thing that every happen to us we  were outside of wal
mart collecting
  donatons for diabetes walk .
i had a picture of my two kids and was showing it.
i old lady walked and said well after the first comes down with diabetes you
should of have gotten the hint and quit having children. i thought i was
going to hit her. i had to walk off from her.
what she did not realize was my baby was dxed first and that is not for her
to say whether we should have more kids or not.
