Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
One of my diabetic friends who is over 70 carries his needle in a toothbrush holder & has been known to remove it from his pocket while talking to friends & jab himself without people really noticing!

The only thing that holds him back a bit is a childhood bike accident that left one leg shorter & stiff. There have been times in the recent past that his leg has caused him big trouble & further operations, but the diabetes - never.

Diabetes support organisations have lots of info. Other 'Catters have diabetes too & can offer tips & info.
