I'm type1 and have been since I was 7, now 48. I'm retired due to health. Diabetis has cause me to have 2 heart attack and I now have 3 stents. My last heart attack and stent was March 4th of this year. I have to be honest, I do sometimes find it hard to keep going on. can't do half of what i use to. I know, blow up the party balloons and get the hats out, another pity me story..lol.I'm married for my 2nd time will be 12 yrs this month. I have one child of my own she is 30 and a teacher. She is diabetis free but my 9 year old grandaughter is type1. 2 grandkids, one of each. 3 step-sons, 2 are in the Army, one in Iraq right now. Son-in-law is in army also. The oldest step-son is a PRISON GUARD.I own 9 dogs, recently put down 2 pit bulls of mine because they attacked me and killed my weiner dog. Now, i just have to pray i don't get an infection in the wounds. I don't want or care to hear the pit bull bad dog stories, think i know that now. Like i said..I was an animal abuse officer. I love nature and just watching all it involves. I'm a short, fluffy country gal..lol.
