I'm blaming diabetes for my broken collarbone

Alrighty, I broke it at my friend's house while playing airsoft.

Because of diabetes, my parent's never let me do sports when I was younger.

The only thing they would let me do is boyscouts.

While at scouts, I met my friend. Since he went to a different school system, there is no chance I would have met him elsewhere.

Also because I couldn't do sports, I got into airsoft to help with the boredom.

Since I…

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!
