    Too bad Diabetes Mine is losing Haidee. Her art was the main reason i even looked at this website. This is one of the best ones yet! You are going places, Haidee!

    What a sad day. The only reason I had for occassionally dipping into DiabetesMine was to see – and savor – Haidee’s cartoons. The DOC sorely needs a sense of humor and these cartoons are one of the few places I can find them. Now that they’re gone it will be hard to find a good reason to come back with regularity. What a pity.

    Great for you Haidee, and all the best to you! ‘Tis no surprise that your amazingly clever talents are taking you places; you are clearly winning in the category of the diabetes world’s most realistic humorists of all time. Bravo! Encore! We Love you!
    Sorry Diabetes Mine.

    CRAP, you are leaving??? You were somehow able to make me laugh while I cried at the dark side of my diabetes. Your cartoons gave me comfort at the absurdity of me trying to be a pancreas. “FUN STUFF” was naive. “REAL STUFf” is what you gave us. You will be missed Haidee.

    The internet is filled with websites about diabetes written by “experts” who are not diabetic or were recently diagnosed. There is certainly a place for this, but I read an article about Haidee and it mentioned she is a life-long type 1. I too have been type 1 for almost 50 years. So few people can understand what Haidee’s comics mean because they don’t have the experience that Haidee does. It shows in her drawings and it’s no BS. I look forward to seeing your work in the future! I’ll miss these Sunday comic’s Haidee. Good luck!

    Your cartoons will be sorely missed here, but we wish you luck in your future endeavors.

    Your cartoons bring hope, inspiration, a sense of cameraderie, and a plain old laugh to people in the diabetes community – especially those with diabetes.

    While I am a diabetes “expert” of sorts, my cartoons can never compete with your cartoons since yours are born and delivered with the personal and heartfelt perspective that only someone with diabetes can deliver.

    We will follow you and your work wherever you go.

    I hope you’ll continue to share your work, Haidee. Your stuff is funny in a way that no one else dares to be … and that makes me want to thump my chest and throw diabetes gang signs. :)

    Good luck in whatever comes next, and your fan base will surely follow!

    This was a great comic, not so much because it was humorous, but because it’s true!

    Sorry to see Haidee go. Her comics are so genuine. She really “gets it”. Oh, well, bet of luck in the future Haidee. I’m sure we’ll see your work somewhere.
