Zoe replied to Jerry's discussion 'I guess I am not a "Diabetic"'
"Actually the first I heard of it was PWA's. "People with AIDS". During the height of the AIDS epidemic there was both incredible stigma and the resistance to having AIDS define oneself."

"Funny I was just talking with my students today about political correctness and when it goes too far. When it goes too far imho is when it tells us how to describe ourselves. If you have been comfortable for 39 years in calling yourself a…"

"I only go every three months because I now have Medicare which requires it. No, I rarely get much out of it. But I do better with my attitude towards white coat ignorance as I have very low expectations: Fill the prescriptions I request, write lab…"

Zoe replied to Katy80K's discussion 'New Doc want to see me evey three months'
"I never got an answer to this from Katy: I was told that Medicare required PWD to go every three months so I've been doing that since I started Medicare. Does that vary by state? I was also wondering if that rule is just Type 1 or includes Type…"

Zoe commented on Manny Hernandez's group 'Pumping Seniors'
"Because the statistics are unclear if you don't know if they refer to one or the other or both and because many of the facts would have different meaning if referring to one or the other.For example if the studies are referring exclusively to…"

Hi ,

You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing. Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!

Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!

Zoe, My comment was not directed at you; if I didn't make that clear, please let me say it now and remove all doubt. I do have to say, however, that I think you are wasting your energy trying to reason with someone who won't be reasoned with, and who simply will not hear what you say. You're attempting to move an immovable object.

Best,
David
