I have totally enjoyed my time on this board. It has been informative, and, oh my, so much help to me. Your advice has had a great impact on my diabetic control and lifestyle, but I am leaving. There have lately been some nasty and hurtful comments and I am gone.
With a lot of experience (50 years) and when you are asking for our advice, please don't tell me to stay on subject... That really hurt. I have been diabetic since I was 9 years old, and understand children and that other children are uneducated of theD environment and can truly impact the child. Try as you might, a non diabetic parent can never truly understand. And when peers are not accepting, it is devastating, especially to a teen.
I am sorry, but the comment was inappropriate and hurtful, and I am gone.
I appreciate all the help I have received. Thanks, and I will miss you.
I hope that you'll stay, also, even if you need a break for awhile. The newbies on here benefit so very much from the knowledge and experience of everyone who has had diabetes for a long time!
I hope from everyone's response you realize you are a valued member of the community and that you will reconsider your decision. These types of things can happen easily online, sometimes the best thing to do is to ignore another's post. Others here have benefited from your knowledge and experience and will miss your input if you leave.
