Hello, my name is Leontine, but I always use the name Peggy Sue..(my cat) on the Internet. I'm a mother, photographer and dreamer..I love fashion, home deco and I love to photograph kids. I'm a diabetic type 1 since 15 years and have no complications so far. I really work hard to manage my diabetes as perfect as possible. It's not easy cause I'm a highly sensible person so every little stress or weather, hot cold, have great influence on my sugarlevels. I'm very sensitive to Insuline..so I easily get hypos. Most people I know have type 2 diabetes. So I would love to read or try to get in contact with people with type 1 diabetes.

Peggysue, my health is very good, I hope yours is too. I am pleased you liked my book. Yesterday I read the 16'th review of my book on amazon.com. The other 15 reviews were very complimentary, but the newest one really blasted the book, big time. The lady said it is not a good book, she was very disappointed, and she does not recommend it. Different strokes for different folks, I suppose.
