Re: [IP] Anger towards diabetes



Hi Sylvia,

As a mother and a D myself -when first dx'd I thought I had it rough - until
I went to my first class and met a mother who was learning for her
child-then I knew I was blessed-please know you should have NO guilt you are
an angel-give yourself that-don't know how I would do it I have enough
trouble controlling my own D let alone a childs.  Take Care, Hang in There
and fight,  God Bless
Carol T.
