Thank you for such a thought provoking post.

It does make me think that it would be fun to have a diabetes camp...for adults. (Where all the food was great and was clearly labeled with carb count and other important info, and where all the diabetes supplies were taken care of.) Everyone there (including 'staff') would have Type 1 diabetes. That'd be a lot of fun.

Hi, I just found your blog and am blown away. This is a great post. I think so many of us can relate and yet never write about these things. Thank you for writing about this!
Is it okay if I add a link to your blog on mine?

I just read this:

I'm a 51-year-old Type I, diagnosed at age 16 and with no complications as yet. I DID have a wonderful diabetic vacation experience in 1994, when I went with Dr. Jean-Jacques Grimm to Switzerland. I had met Dr. Grimm through what was called, in those days, the International Diabetic Athletes Association. That organization has changed its name, but just Google it. You won't find Dr. Grimm there, but you'll likely find other diabetics to vacation with - maybe even in a group. Good luck!

Thanks for the information...I bookmarked your site, and I appreciate your time and effort to make your blog a success!
