Ok I am taking that as you think I interpreted your previous posts to mean that you thought dealing with diabetes laughable, and you are appalled that I would think that of you? If so, then it is you who missed my point. I didn't assume that at all. I was telling you that I disagreed with your post because as I read it, I was a bit dismissive of the OPs feelings, and pretty insensitive. See now that is a bit closer to the truth I think. I doubt any one of us who were dealing with a new, raw diagnoses would not get upset at such a statement.
