The other morning when I was headed to work, I was listening to The Johnny Dare Morning Show which is a really funny and edgy morning radio show in the Kansas City area. Johnny had a comedian by the name of Robert Schimmel on the program (this was actually pre-recorded but that is not important.) Robert Schimmel is considered by many who know and enjoy adult comedy as one of the funniest men in the world. Well, on the morning show, it was brought up how his act is largely based on his history and battle with cancer. You may be wondering what this has to do with Diabetes but it does and I’m getting there. during the interview, Robert made a statement that really struck a chord with me.

Thank you for blogging this! I've always felt similar. Diabetes is not something that I'm going to let drag me down. I refuse to stop living my life. Made a few changes yes, but I'm alive and doing fine. Thanks again!!
