A friend who needs help

My Adult Friend (whose profile name I shall not mention, for privacy reasons) is going through a very tough crisis right now.

Tomorrow, her oldest son is going to be getting a glucose fasting test. The doctors fear he may have diabetes. The kid is not even a teenager yet, and the fact that he's had this thrown at him while so young... somehow, it doesn't seem fair.

I've never asked for this before, but I'm giving it a shot tonight. I'm leaving the option up to you, dear reader, but if you could find it in you to perhaps say a little prayer for both my AF and especially her son. I'm not a religious man, and I question whether or not prayer works, but I'm saying a prayer tonight before I go to bed.

This isn't a "AnEngima" type bullshit scenario. This is real. If it wasn't, I wouldn't ask of this.

And to my Adult Friend... stay strong, girl. And no matter what happens, if you need anything... I'm there.

that runs in my entire family... and i'm a type 2 diabetic... i will say a prayer, in my own fashion, for your friend's son

i pray the tests come out clear!

if he does have it though, it's fortunate to catch it so early BEFORE much of the damage is done. many with type 1 diabetes go undiagnosed until they have a diabetic coma in their late teens/early 20's... many with type 2 can go up to 20 years, well into their 50's even before they are diagnosed... it can take 20 years just to develop symptoms too... it's nasty stuff because by then your liver, kidneys, pancreas, heart and arteries are toasted.

...That which does not kill me merely pisses me off!...

I was diagnosed in October.

I'ts a lot to get used to.

But I'm doing it. I'm 34. I've lost 37 lbs, now, and take my meds and excersize and all that. I know my chances for getting other stuff is huge.

You adjust. You live.

There are worse things, but I wouldn't wish this on anyone.

St. Jude, please hear our prayers and keep them with you...
