[IP] Update: Teen portraying D on Y&R

Hi all:  Just letting you know that the soap opera Young and Restless is doing
an excellent job of portraying the teen with diabetes in a very accurate and
intelligent way!  I was concerned that they would make it out to be "no big
deal" and forget he would have type 1, but no, they are going all the way!

Last show had the boy learning to give himself shots, showed him drawing in
the insulin (air first) and injecting into his tummy.

Just thought you might want to know that the awareness is getting out there!
