[IPk] Re: [IPn] A new newsletter for YOU (maybe?)
Hi Michael n' all....
I've done the survey (and given my $ to insulin pumpers - some more $$$
are coming your way via CAF, too)
There was no 'any other comments' box in the survey, so I wonder if you
would mind feeding this back to the person who set it up:
I am VERY annoyed that you describe me as 'an intensively managed
diabetic' (at least, I think I am the person you are describing!).
Who do you THINK does the managing??? I do! Not a doctor, not a nurse,
not the excellent IP-uk group ... ME! I am 'an intensively managing
diabetic' _or_ 'a person who intensively manages their diabetes'.
Do you know _anyone_, other than a child, whose diabetes is 'intensively
managed' by someone else???? If so, please can I swap lives with them???
Just for a couple of weeks? Or the odd weekend? Or even an afternoon
Somehow, I think that I have a fundamental difference of opinion with
the editorial board ... (but if they would like me to write an opinion
piece, I'd be up for that!)
