Re: [IP] Venting, sad news.......
So sorry to hear about our son. I still remember the shock I had when I
was diagnosed at 18 years of age, 42 years ago. I was so ignorant to deal
with this disease, your son is not. That is a big plus in his favor. His
knowledge will help him deal with the everyday situations he will be faced
with. Best wishes to you both.
