Fw: [IP] Soooo mad

 member of this mail list? She might find it easier to learn about the
 disease from strangers than from her sister. It could be a real eye opener
 for her.

 My 80 year old mother lives with me now, and has never understood diabetes
(which I think stems from fear and guilt in both my parents), but reading
some of the IP posts to her has helped a whole lot!

I didn't catch how old you and your sister are, Rebecca, but I am 40, my
brothers are 49 and 56, and when they want to be total jerks, they still use
diabetes against me ("It's all in your head" etc.).  So I've decided,
finally, that I care too much about what they think, they care too little
about what I think, and since I will always be "baby sister", they'll always
be jerks to me sometimes.

Do you know what the Number One cause of sibling rivalry is?  Having more
than one child! <:~)
