As sincerely as I can say it ... I am so thankful for ... DIABETES! I do not say this lightly, I know that my type 1 friends will never be able to say this... however I do state this publicly because the 300 million diabetics on the planet need to hear this.


We all have challenges in our lives. Question everything and keep searching and testing... keep STRIVING to improve your health and fitness... I do.
