LifeAfterDx--Diabetes Uncensored

Hi! I’m William “Lee” Dubois (called either Wil or Lee, depending what part of the internet you’re on). I’m a diabetes columnist and the author of four books about diabetes that have collectively won 16 national and international book awards. (Hey, if you can’t brag about yourself on your own blog, where can you??) I have the great good fortune to pen the edgy Dear Abby-style advice column every Saturday at Diabetes Mine; write the Diabetes Simplified column for dLife; and am one of the ShareCare diabetes experts. My work also appears in Diabetic Living and Diabetes Self-Management magazines. In addition to writing, I’ve spent the last half-dozen years running the diabetes education program for a rural non-profit clinic in the mountains of New Mexico. Don’t worry, I’ll get some rest after the cure. LifeAfterDx is my personal home base, where I get to say what and how I feel about diabetes and… you know… life, free from the red pens of editors (all of whom I adore, of course!).

An unexpected reimbursement


The email header read “You’ve got money!”

Well, that’s nice.

But those hot Russian babes that were dying to meet me didn’t work out too well.

And not that I tried it, but some guy told me his penis is the same size.

And a lady I knew got burned in a shady deal with the ex-finance minister of a small African nation.

So you gotta be careful on the internet. Yep, your computer really needs a virtual condom.

But the sender was one of my D-kinfolk, so I went ahead and opened it, and this is what I saw:




Thanks, Bernard. I think this is the nicest, most unexpected, most wonderful gift I ever received.
