Diabetes Sucks

July 4th - a time to feel patriotic and have a good time - RIGHT? It seems that the days which are supposed to be fun and filled with family, friends and great food seem to come off kind of depressing.

Fun in the Sun

Now after dinner I am just worn out. Guess I should take 'r easy to make sure the sugar is all in-check!

The Diagnoses in 1996

I was diagnosed by chance (thank goodness!). My wife forced me to visit a doctor prior to going on a camping trip in the Rocky Mountains. I was having symptoms of leg cramps, rapid weight-loss, cuts that would not heal, and a…
