Re: [IP] is diabetes considered to be a disability



So, if this is a disability, what do we get out of the fact? Do we get the
little yellow parking tags so we can park in the handicapped spaces at
walmart? Maybe we can get extra returns on our taxes like being blind? How
is this tag of ours helping us?
