It is good when you see others being an inspiration!

If BB has had it 25 years, still going strong, even with his weight, then I know I have a chance to survive as well.

Exactly! I keep a mental tally of those that I read about, and meet, that have made it into their 80's, and beyond with diabetes. It's growing larger all the time. I know by taking good care, diabetes can be managed successfully, and complications can often be avoided.
