Re: [IP] (IP) Diabetes horrible?? (My opinion)

I have had diabetes for about 44 years and it is horrible. I would not wish
it on my worst enemy.  If I had been on the pump from the start it would
have been better but it would still have been horrible both for me and my
family. Whilst a cure would be a miracle isn't it time that the best
treatment for Type 1 (that is INSULIN PUMPS) was available for all, both
rich and poor, all over the world and not just in a few European countries?
