In 1832, he was a 22-year old business failure.

That same year he ran for the legislature and was defeated.

In 1833, he was a business failure once again.

In 1836, he was said to have suffered a nervous breakdown.

In 1838, he lost in an effort to become Speaker of the House
in the State Legislature.

Five years later, he ran for Congress — again it was in vain.

In 1846, he ran for Congress and won — only to lose his re-election bid in 1848.

He ran for the Senate in 1854, and lost.

He ran for the Vice-presidential nomination in 1856, and lost that too.

In 1860, he became the 16th President of the United States.

Honest Abe Lincoln

That is very much the same with my diabetes. I tried so many things for about 50 years and still had poor control. Then I used basal/bolus control and carb counting and now I am pumping. After all that time I now have very good control.

Never give up. There is a light at the end of the tunnel if you care enough to search for it and work hard to get there!

Abe Lincoln has always been my favorite President. If it were possible, I would like to go back in time and talk with him. He is someone who never gave up, even in the worst of times. A true role model.

Is there such thing as a diabetic that is positive and negative? If so, can you cancel it or cure it?
