Speaking of pain, we are sad today to bid a fond farewell to Haidee as our regular weekly artist here at the Sunday Funnies. She is off to new frontiers. We wish her all the best of health and happiness (and a generous helping of the snark we so adore ;) )

Going forward, we will be featuring various artists here. If YOU happen to be a creative type, and would like to submit some form of artwork that falls under the header "Diabetes LOL," please email us. We're offering a cash stipend and tons of DOC love for the pieces we choose to feature.

Tune in next week to see what we've got up our sleeves.
