Re: [IP] Who should represent diabetes?



I can remember a time (I've had diabetes type 1 since 1958) when readers of
"Forcast", complained that there were too many negative stories of people
who havediabetes and so they changed there foremat.  I've been getting the
magazine for 51 years!  I couldn't read at that age, but my mom did' and she
disliked reading about all the negative things that could happen to her
daughter (me).  So which way is really better???  Some people can't take it.
