This is great information that you have posted. I am just readding more information on Dawn Phenonmenon, which my doctor suspects I have. I was so freaked out until I visted tuDiabetes and found out that I'm not alone. On top of that, I was thrilled to find a link for Christian Diabetics. This site is great. I've referred some of my Diabetic friends to TuDiabetes... I really hope they take advantage of the resources. Have a wonderful holiday.

I'm sorry- you probably already know about Eric's work. I didn't realize that I linked up with his profile through a discussion dated back to 2008. Sorry for the bother!

Hi I read on Eric Devine's profile page that you are looking for writers to publicize your blog?

First, did you know that Devine is a publshed author? His book is very good "This Side of Normal".

He has reviews on Amazon. :)
