    Excellent post. I need to remind myself of this every day. I feel more responsible for my disease because I have type 2 and I blame myself for it way too much. But this is what I have to deal with, I may as well do it graciously and with tons of self-love.

    Riva, your writing is always thought provoking and inspiring. I’d forgotten about the leg cramps, I also suffered from those in 1972. I’m so glad that’s all behind me.

    For anyone else, read at least one of Riva’s books, you’ll be glad you did.

    Barnard, I have to tell you I have never heard anyone else say they got leg cramps. I knew we were linked in some special way ;-)

    Remember my first discipline with your ABC book was to read one every morning as a meditation. Ellen and I need to do that again. Thanks.

    Thanks for sharing this, Riva. Your story — and your relationship with your husband — is an inspiration!
