Those are cool... I just can't afford anything like that, right now. No job, unemployment is done, and both my husband and I have D. It's tough to buy things like that in a bad economy.

Hey, my Tu Diabetes girlfriend has Type 1 diabetes, so I just started a campaign called 'Run To Stop Diabetes'. Visit for more info on the campaign & let me know what you think!! We're running the 2011 ING NYC Marathon to raise money & awareness for diabetes.
