Hugs

So on Saturday I'm in the kitchen, trying to clean up the mess of us being a virtual single-parent family for a week, when Number One Son walks in.

"Mommy! Are you still radioactive?"

"No," I say, and he runs over and gives me a big hug. Now Number One Son just turned 13, and hugs really aren't his thing, so I hug back happily, glad for a bit of spontaneous cuddling.

Then he backs up, grabs his neck, and gasps, "Ahh! My thyroid!"

Wise@$$.

I hope I can somehow get in touch with you. I "just" read 2 of your blogs on diabetes, and they are way too close to home. I have had diabetes 20 years and I am heading in the direction with "treatments," (no really more like the correct treatments) and we seem to be on the same path. I am very passionate as you must be as well. I'm a good person and care for others... which is hard to find a people that anyways without diabetes... let alone with diabetes.

I have a youtube.com account. Type in "1HappyDiabetic" all one word in the search. You can find me. Or "1HappyDiabetic" on tudiabetes.com.

Fairytales do come true... more then we all think. :-) I hope.

I "just" read 2 of your blogs on diabetes (years old) and they are way too close to home. I have had diabetes 20 years and am heading in the direction with "treatments," (no really more like the correct treatments) as you seem to be advancing toward.
I am very passionate as you must be as well. You are a good person, care, and I have diabetes. To have a blog so people like me can at least feel some sort of inner sympathy is more then kind.
I'm a good person and care for others. It’s hard to find a person like that anyways... let alone with diabetes, and thinking about it (diabetes) like rational adult.

Val,

Thank you for posting the banners for World Diabetes Day. I could not be more appreciative of your help and support.

Also, I'm glad your son decided to be a little affectionate, even though he had to throw in a smart remark. You know at that age you can't be too sappy/lovey dovey with your parents. You have to save that stuff for whomever you're "going out with."

Take care,
