    Great post! This is so inspirational. I’ve known many people with diabetes and know of the confusion and suffering that they go through. Great advice!

    Thank you so much for this! I see myself in every thing you said.When I started going out with my boyfriend I knew nothing about diabetes, as you I learned a lot about being ready to deal with the lows. Also I learned how to just be there for him, not nag and try to support him the best I can. Thank you so much for sharing this, it helps a lot to hear other peoples stories about taking care of their loved ones with diabetes.

    Tu diabetes is so addictive for me, I can’t go a day without checking it out and commiserating with friends. Thanks for it and an inspirational story.
    I have been branding all of my friends who help me in the diabetes fight as type 3 you should have seen the laughs we had when someone actually thought they had type 3 diabetes. fun times

    Amy – thank you so much for sharing Adriena’s post with us. It is an amazing slice of insight into what living with us can be like.

    Adriena – thank YOU for doing all that you do! I really loved what you said about the negative energy staying in the air and making it very dense. What a wonderful description of what it can be like sometimes.
