    It would be so nice if you would provide images and info that can be published into places like virtual worlds. For example, if I had an image of that button, I could make a button that could be spread around in Second Life and Inworldz. That would require more lead time also–a couple of weeks, even a month, would be helpful. As it is, I can’t find an image from which to make a button and can’t really do much. We could have held a dance, an awareness event, a fundraiser…

    Happy World Diabetes Day Everyone!!!

    In light of this day, I wanted to reach out to patients with diabetes to express my admiration of the efforts that it takes to live with this disorder. Having continuous exposure to the medical community can be very frustrating. With that in mind, I am trying to bridge the gap between patients and practitioners with personal stories from both a patient’s and a practitioner’s perspective, as I am a certified PA and a lifelong patient with multiple ailments. Credible medical tips and information are also provided. Hope this site ( can help more people with their quest for better health and ultimately, a better life.

    This is the only ailment that has a public holiday worldwide, the holiday is to allow us to reflect back and find ways to help others in a bad situation.

    Thank you for this beautiful piece, and happy diabetes day to all of you out there.
