Re: [IP] Re: Cotton candy
With all due respect, I am sure most of us appreciate your opinion. But
please, as the saying goes ... Until you walk in my shoes ...
I appreciate your concern for my daughters health, because as you have
insinuated, I obviously don't have any concern since I allow her to eat the
foods you find "forbidden".
Let me ask you this, do you have a degree in diabetes management that is
current with the 1990s. Remember, this is 1999 not 1959.
As Oprah says, Get with the Program ... Insulin / carbs used in the correct
amounts will help us all live as healthy a life as possible. It doesn't
matter were the carbs come from ... cotton candy or that dreaded baked potato.
Cotton candy a killer ... I laugh at the thought ... not in today's world.
You are suggesting that anyone that smokes will get cancer, anyone that eats
a high fat diet with die of a heart attack, and those of us who dared to eat
red M & M's years ago ... OMG we are all doomed.
I had a brother-in-law who died of cancer ... he was a diabetic also ... type
1 ... like most people on this list. He never smoked, never drank, and led a
wonderful life, but the cotton candy didn't kill him. And I have a
grandmother, 91 years old this year, and she has smoked for decades ... and I
mean decades. No cancer, alive and kicking. Funny, the things that were
supposed to kill them, didn't.
So, lighten up. No one is going to eat cotton candy 24/7. Most of us have
great diets, but like to indulge a little. Anything in moderation should be
okay. I truly hope that we all learn to love the little things life has to
offer us. Enjoy the beauty of sunset, see the love pouring from a new
romance, and mostly the euphoria a parent receives in seeing a smile on
their child's face and a laugh in their voice ... and maybe all due to cotton
Mom to Rachel, who would do nothing to ever be a detriment to my child's
health, but will allow her some joy in life.
