[IP] Stubborn DAD's (was) COULD THIS BE POSSIBLE???

Are we sisters??  You described my Dad.  My Mom diagnosed him 3 years before
he even went to the doctor.  He only went after my daughter was diagnosed at
18 months.  Still won't test properly or eat properly and will die before
taking an insulin shot!
