Thanks sis for your support as always Fundraising is a little slow at this time but I am counting on next month to make great strides


Good job on the article. Hopefully it will inspire people to keep moving! Exercise is so important for all diabetics, in fact for all people.


I did the same thing with a publication that is sent to the members of my society. I was very blunt and didn't "sugar coat" anything. I said everything from the highs to the lows, to not knowing what to eat and fearing for my life after being diagnosed.

I think the only victory I have right now is that I am still alive but I struggle just like everybody else. I got several compliments from the article because even though some people had relatives that were diabetic they still didn't have an idea of what they actually at to deal with.

I hope this would encourage all diabetics to write about their experience and submit articles to your local newspaper, magazine, blog, or even a professional organizational publication.

I look forward to reading about your experience.
Awesome article. Grats on the article and positive life. Every good word is a good work. The more there is to read, the better.
Thank you for your encouragement and support
