Re: [IP] Re: Food Police and Summer Camps

 Good thing that MOM's & DAD's have become food police. Since my son's
diagnosis, no one tells us what to do about Joshua's diabetes. HMMMMM, thanks
for the advice - (to the nurse, endo, CDE) and then we do what is best for
Joshua. No one knows what is best for him other than us. Yes, it's taken a year
for us to decide this. . . but every person with diabetes reacts differently. We
are the only ones who know what "works". THAT is what is so incideous about this
stupid disease YMMV!
