[IP] Re: insulin-pumpers-digest V2 #149

     In responce to my 'elder brother' buddy (though not by very much and 
     I'm pretty sure I've got you beat on years total and certain on years 
     on pump)
     >Sara will have a Barbie doll with your name on it sticking rusty 
     >nails and pins. . . . LOL
     I have a kit for making dolls of doctors into which any medical device 
     which has been used on oneself can be inserted (as painfully as 
     possible) for their OWN enjoyment.  I also am an expert at choosing 
     the WRONG site for an IV so if anyone needs advice as to what'll be 
     worse for them than what they did to .....

     Then the medical staff of hospitals and Drs offices should minimally 
     know enough to say "I don't know about this, you should find a doctor 
     who does".

     I'll give you many points on this, but, again, if a Doctor don't know 
     he shouldn't fake it.  I have (thank G-d) had doctors tell me they 
     didn't know, weren't sure, etc and that I should get to an xxxxx or 
     maybe ask xxxxx about things.  I've also had doctors who 'promised' a 
     'cure' (sorry, no money back guarentees).

     Absolutely.  Bless his name that we are here today and NOT 35 years 
     ago (and if anyone wants to know the difference, please feel free to 
     send an e-mail to me).  
     I am firmly of the belief that nothing is of chance, that G-d makes 
     all things happen to the tiniest of degree.  Why one has diabetes and 
     one does not most of us cannot guess but I would venture to say that 
     all of us could find SOMEthing that happened (or didn't) due to it 
     that we would be awefully unthankfull for had it occured.  I also have 
     found most long term diabetics have a much different view of life than 
     others (as I've told many people: most people have to THINK and ACT to 
     commit suicide.  I have to THINK and ACT to stop my body from it).
