Re: [IP] diabetics in movies...Steel Magnolias



I used to attend and later counsel at a diabetic camp and saw a teenage girl
go into convulsions once when her blood sugar was low. That was the only
time in working with hundreds of diabetic kids and in my own 23 years of
being diabetic I saw that happen. It was scary and real, but I think quite
rare...
