Like "Harlen... thumbs up for the heartfelt post that breaks through some of the myths and misconceptions about diabetics and insulin. So often people (diabetic and non-diabetic) fail to see that the cause of diabetes and control is in the body, not in the mind. We have come such a long way with diabetes but we have so much more to go for true understanding and awareness. What I feel is important is focusing on what we CAN and SHOULD do or have over what we CAN"T or SHOULDN'T do or have. Gone are the days of "the sugar" and references to "sugar diabetes." Hopefully with each day that passes we will learn more and DO more for our minds, bodies and souls. Being diabetic is not the end of the world ... it's the beginning of a new one. "
