Don't I wish!!!!!

But it ain't gonna happen -- I live alone, and my 25-year-old son is in
Seattle, and he'd be too squeamish to do DM chores, anyway!!!!

But actually, I find the chores themselves to be the least of it -- it's
the not feeling well, and constant having to remember to check BGs or
wonder if the funny feelings I'm feeling are a hypo or just funny
feelings, etc. that is difficult. And for that, the best source of
support for me has been the friends I've made on the lists -- at least I
can talk about it!
