Or that you have labile sugars and AT TIIMES it is difficult to maintain 
control.  It's a slap in the face to some to hear a blatent "your diabetes is 
not in control" when referring to a brittle diabetic.  Although most of us 
are brittle, it doesn't mean we ourselves are not in control of it....it's 
just more difficult to do so  :O)
