Comment of the Day!

  Thanks for the nice words Spike1 I am 6 weeks from my first year diabetes anniversary and I have literally lived this disease every day. I just had my third A1C test and it was a positive. And I feel really good about how hard i try to prevent any complications. That said the positive outcomes are way overshadowed by a daily barrage of ALMOSTS, TOO HIGHS! SHOULD I EAT THAT, YOU"LL BE SORRY!!! But I don't think I have a choice if I want to keep living an active life Spike.  Mike s, Always trying to be positive hopeful

– Anthony Bourdain
