Understand perfectly, but some of us started from much further back. I've never been exactly cavalier about my health, but I doubt I would be this OCD about it without the diabetes.
Don't get me wrong, I'd give the diabetes back in a heartbeat if I could. But given that it is what it is and isn't going anywhere, there have been some behavioral changes for the better that might not have happened otherwise.
But I'm going to withdraw that as my "favorite" thing. My favorite thing is the friends I've made.
