Watch it anyway - it is a good movie and just cuz the diabetic dies doesn't
mean the world has ended...well maybe it does, but the movie has other loose
ends to tie up.

Yeah - like the nutso homeless guy with the shaggy bear on ER a couple weeks
ago - His sugars were 142 (great per the nurse) and then a mouse crawls out of
his beard - DONCHA know we are all weird psychos with mices (meece?) living
under our unshaved chins.  sigh

This guy was amazingly intelligent and seemed to just accept the diabetes.  I
had to explain why I was all emotional, and he was understanding (wow!  an
understanding guy??!?!?!)  Of course, at that time (November 1989 to be
exact), I was on multiple injections and tested about 5 times a week, so it
wasn't like he was inundated with it.  I am still friends with him and he is
still very interested in all the testing and protocol and everything involved
with it.  My latest endeavor of the opposite sex didn't even get as far as
seeing where it attached before he bailed - the loser.  Guess it freaked him
out that I had laser surgery one week and was in the hospital the next.
