Re: [IP] publicity not always good

Hey Lori. I've had diabetes for over 14 yrs and been on the pump for almost
14 yrs. Sometimes even with great control a person just destined to have
problems earlier than some. You can't really tell sometimes. I've fought
hard for good control and with a1c's running between 6 & 8 most of my life
I've just recently started having a high protein count in my urine. Higher
than limit anyway. My doc is going to redo the 24 hr urine collection just
to be sure, but she already talking meds for that. I excercise often, work
way to hard but sometimes,,,,,,,,, well you know. I will continue to fight
it. They'll have to pry my stiff fingers from my bicycle. I'll never make
the "Tour de France" but I'll ride till I drop.
Talk at you later, gotta roll on for now
