OMG! I LOVE your video. I am definitely spreading you - this - around. Go ahead and blame me if you get bombarded. As a mother, I get blamed for lots of stuff (e.g., "Mom told me it was okay;" or "My mother does it, so can I;" or, and I hate this one, "My mother doesn't care.") Humorously, at this point in my life, I purposely tell people to blame me cuz they know I'll take care of it. Whatever. In the long run, thanks for your video! AR.

THIS, my friend, is wonderful!! And it's the perfect example of why I'm here at TuDiabetes.
You remind me to take a deep breath, try not to internalize the comments too much, and continue to be be gracious.
Thank you so much!!! Five stars!
