Re: [IP] Okay - I'm rejoicing!



I agree with this message.
Some diabetics have it easier than others, and those of you who don't
beleive it is so bad..all I have to say is .....BE THANKFUL!
Sounds like if we think this is a "killer disease" we are throwing ourselves
a pity-party. I know I could have something worse. But this damn sure is not
a disease to celebrate over, and no I am not real thankful.
