You have come so far in the last year that I have known you. I am so proud of you. I owe you more than you will ever know, the day you came into my life was the day I met my soulmate in so many ways. So thank you for everything you are and all that you do. The kids and I adore you :)

My son is 26 years old and has type1 diabetes and autonomic and peripheral neuropathy. He was misdiagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2007...so his sugar was very high for several years and wasn't managed. At the time he weighed about 220 and he was told that ifbhe lost weight he would probably reverse the diabetes....which of course was wrong -- he's type !!! He is 6'1" and weighs 137 pounds now.... can't gain weight because of the constant diarrhea. I've been reading your blog and everything you have described is how my son describes his pain. I know he would want to read your blog - to know there is someone out there like him. I haven't told him about you yet though. We haven't said out loud yet that he may be like this for a really long time. He's only been in pain since July 2010. He has some good moments, like you have described your nephews, he has a niece that keeps his spirits up. My son's name is Michael...and he's very scared, and so am I. Any advice would be appreciated.

I wish for you and my son to be pain free.
