  1. Love your blog. I Was diagnosed with diabetes a few years ago and at first i listened to the poor direction dr. gave me and allowed it to slow me down. I smartened up and realized that was an excuse and now am a much stronger athlete than i was before. I started a blog a bit ago to encourage others.
    Keep up the good work. I feel educating others that being diabetic isnt the end of the road it just means we CAN.
