Re: [IP] 50 years

I wrote to the Department of Records for lab results at my hospital.
That was some time in the early '90s - for a diff reason. They sent lab
reports from day of dx and the following week in the hosp. I also was
keeping a diary at the time and I photocopied the pages while I was in
hosp. Mom had to write as I was entered to hosp. in a coma and couldn't
write for a few days - my arm was tied to a board with I.V.s.

They made you take various tests to prove no complications. Drs balked
at putting *healthy* ppl through unnecessary tests for an award so they
changed it to a certificate w/o tests. I'm going to ask the gal who
*treated* me in Boston if they give the certificate and award to Type 2s
who use insulin that long. I'll report when I get the report.
