Lee Ann Thill is one of my favorite people around. She is super smart and plugs into the emotional side of life with diabetes with experienced perception. She's been wrestling with type 1 diabetes for a long time. She get's it. Looking to take her smartness to the next level, she's gone back to school (hello, Dr. Thill!).

After only a step or two into the room I was stopped in my tracks by the sheer size of this thing. I had no idea. No. Idea. I could not even see the people on the other side of the room.

If you have a moment, would you take a look? I would love to hear what some of you think about food and our diabetes. What are your experiences? One of my favorite bloggers, Lee … [Read more...] about Food Issues? Duh!
