Re: [IP] What not to say or do to diabetic children....

Well I can actually say I have been in that position more than once . You
learn to except this . My father has not talked to me in over 7yrs because I
have diabetes and one night when I was asleep on his couch I had a pretty
bad reaction well I ended up cussing him and slinging my arms well he got
pissed off and beat the living s--- out of me and he knew I was in a
reaction and I didn't mean what I said but my father seems to think that I
couldn't be part of him because I am not perfect and my brother and sister
are at least they don't have a desease . But whats funny is I got diabetes
from his side of the family !!!!hahaha Anyway no one is perfect and I have
forgiven my father for what he did even though he still doesn't talk to me
at least I know I tried an I don't blame myself anymore.
 Hey I love that movie I bought it and I watch it about once a year its a
tradition in my house and it kinda reminds me to take care of myself.....But
everyone has there on opinion.!
