Dear Family and Friends,
To those both near and far I want to apologize if I seem distant. I am and I know that, but I have no choice really. The demands of diabetes combined with a job, a family, and some family fun time leave me very little time for anything else. I want you to know that I think of you all often. Those of you who are far away I have become very bad at staying in touch. I want you to know that it is not because I don't think of you, I do often. It is not because I have forgotten those years we spent together, I remember it all. It's not because I have a new life and you no longer matter, you do very much.
For those of you who are nearby I have the same apology. I can't always be there for you the way I used to be, but I try my best. I may miss events in your life, I don't want to, but it's not always possible for us to be there. If I seem more stressed out and not as laid back as I used to be, it's because I'm not. D does not lend itself to a laid back, carefree lifestyle. I apologize to and am thankful to all of you who try to understand.
I am truly blessed to have you all as family and friends.
