In response to the continued urging of my dear friends on this site, I am now putting the events in my life for the last 4 or 5 years into a book. My friends have told me how it has encouraged them and taught them a few things about themselves. I want to contribute something positive to this world and look upon this endeavor as one way to help. If it only points out what not to do as a person with diabetes, it will have served the greater good. I hope to move into the final stages of collection soon and am looking forward to the contributions of a Professor Emerita in linguistics who is encouraging me in this venture.

Wish me luck in this endeavor since there are many segments of my efforts floating around cyber Hell. I sure need help in not hitting those mysteriously located keys that send text into the void!! Comments from visitors to my site are definitely appreciated.
