Wow! Your tattoo is AMAZING!!! I'm wanting to get one - and I keep on seeing great designs like yours - but I a) don't want to steal other D-friends designs and b) I just haven't come up with anything in my own artzy fartzy brain yet!!!
Psst - I don't live to far away from you - only a " few " hours paddle downstream from you .

Man I wish I had the GUTS to get that tattoo. I just love it and all that it means. Even when the cure does come, and it's coming, this experience will be meaningful for the rest of our lives. I love your bravery!

Greeting and welcome to a fast growing family of people who ar all ages ,from near and far, with all kinds of experiences and solutions. Just dont be afraid to ASK. As a person insuiln-dependent, since 1977, and a ROLE MODEL who at the young age of 91 have reached over 49.000 and counting.My contacts with top people in the field of diabetes and years of wisdom, has made me share the things that will putyou in the RIGHT TRACK. 1. have a good diabetic specialist, 2.wear a MEDIC-ALERT bracelet,it can SPEAK for you in case of emergencies, 3. listen to yor BODY, it tells you when o eat,snack, rest, sleep and EXERCISE. 4. have a DIABETIC BUDDY, someone you call EVERYDAY, it can serve 2 purposes, make someone's DAY. Try out my AMIGOKIT way of diabetes social group, it means that YOU call 5 diabetics, EVERYDAY, it will let people know you CARE and could SAVE A LIFE, And tell each person o call 5 DIABETICS. Keep In Touch and let me know how its workingin your area? Check out www.restorethebantinghomestead.com and see why AMIGOS will be selling BLUE ROSES on INSULIN APRECIATION DAY, JULY 30 I will be asking insulin users, worldwide,to join me in silence, and give THANKS, for INSULIN, giving hundreds of millions of us, a healthy lifestyle. The meaningof the BLUE ROSE is "ATTAINING THE IMPOSSIBLE' Our mission. The secret of dealing with diabetes is learn as much as you can about your diabetes and you will live LONGER.Have a plan and work the plan, EVERY DAY. clarence.haynes@symatico.ca Keep In Touch
