Hi Zippora- Had to tell you I saw the piece on you that was shown on dLife yesterday. I really enjoyed seeing you dance, but mostly teach the young ballerinas. Your life seems . very full. Hope you have been staying well. Take care.

Hi zippora
I read your book last fall. really enjoyed it. i have type 2. I could really relate to how you were physically feeling before being diagnosed. It was the first time i had heard someone spell it out the way i felt. I guess i didn't feel as alone with my diabeties. simple as it was it made feel good having another persons experance i could relate too. Thank you Bruce

I recently finished your book. I found it to be an inspiring account of a person with diabetes who doesn't let it ruin her life.
