Pooka sorry I didn't know about your girls, your right that it is wrong to have so much for such a tender age.

I do believe all can benefit from exercise, but some may need surgery despite all their efforts. And no one should feel bad about that...life sucks.

Just the other day...some kid asked My dd what is the worst thing that could happen with her diabetes...and my daughter answered, I could die.
This kid asked again:
if her bg is too high, worst thing....I could die
if her bg is too low, worst thing ....I could die

hearing her say this over and over again...I can not even tell you how a Mom feels and yet she is right she could die..worst possible thing.
I really hate that my dd at age 14 has to ponder such things.

bg is blood glucose or blood sugar
