Well, I received an email form my friend, Kelton's Mom. She emailed a few of us to tell us goodbye. It appears that people on other forums have come here and attacked the integrity of a valued member, not for the first time. What is worse, by doing this - people from this forum have started hounding her for 'proof' - proof that she has diabetes, proof that her son does, proof that her husband is in the hospital! HOW CAN THIS BE POSSIBLE? We have many members whose children go to the ER alot for ketones - some kids just get 'em. We have many members who's spouse go to the hospital - it is sad and it is life. We even have members who have found late in life that they also have diabetes - that really sucks. But these are everyday events. Who are we to ask for proof? Why do we even feel the need to ask for proof? Most of all, and what makes me angry, why would we, a tight knit group, listen when a new person comes on and starts a bashing thread (that has since been removed!) Why would a person who is not a part of this community sway our judgment from one post? Our judgment from someone who comes here and asks questions, and voices opinions, and shares amusing stories? I just don't see how we, as a community, would let this type of juvenile, high school bs run off one of our valuable members. I am saddened beyond belief that Teddi, KeltonsMom, feels the need to leave this family. I, for one, will miss her greatly. I really hope everyone takes a moment to tell her not to go!
