I also had another comment about your 26% spent on healthcare. Curious that was my percentage as well. If you have a moment, do you know what percentage of federal poverty you are? I'm trying to figure out if my case (hovering right below 200% poverty) and spending 26% of income on health care is a typicality with people with chronic conditions. Now this is no drawn out sampling survey, just personal curiosity. If you know, email me at iamslh at msn dot com. Thanks again for the response!

Funny how many of us are out there that were mis-diagnosed as type 2 then correctly diagnosed as 1.5. ER doc said I was type 2 and gave me glyburide, and my PCP, of all people, said that was wrong and got me on insulin. The rest, as they say, is history.

And I think you've got plenty of interesting things to say!
