A non-humorous Note
Someone is newly diagnosed with diabetes every 30 seconds. Diabetes kills someone every 3 minutes.
We need a cure in the next 3 minutes.
Please give time and resources generously to the organization of your choice and talk to people about diabetes. Diabetes is the nation's largest health care problem and it receives a fraction of attention and funding of that spent on other diseases.

My six-year-old daughter's catch-all phrase for when she feels a need for a sugar check is "I'm shaky."

She thought that the lead singer was diabetic and trying to let the world know what it was like to be "shaky." Now it is "her" song and we sing it together all the time. Lahle
