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!).

I need your brains

Nope, I didn’t over-dose on insulin and become a zombie (they eat brains, right?). What I really need is your collective wisdom and memory.

There is a publishing tradition so strong that it borders on a fundamental law of physics: a new chapter always starts on the right hand side of the book. But sometimes the previous chapter also ends on the right. This leaves an un-used page on the left between the two. In most books this is left blank.

Seems like a waste of good space to me.

The Born Again Diabetic has eleven such blank pages and I’ve decided the best thing to do with them is to put in great quotes about diabetes.

So please send me your favorite quotes about diabetes. They can be from persons living or dead. They can be from folks famous, infamous, or unknown. They can even be your own. Or mine—-if I said something in the blog that you really loved, let me know.

Reply by comments or email me.

Thanks gang!

Although I'm not sure it's applicable, I've always liked the phrase, "Be nice to diabetics, we have to deal with enough pricks already." or something like that. I have no idea who said it first.

Put in this joke:
Why won't vampires touch diabetics?
They don't want cavities!
