Gee, I look younger in comics :)

Anyway, would you like to see your own story in "the funnies"?

HealthCentral is accepting submissions on stories about diagnosis, or some kind of struggle, or a triumph -- anything having to do with your or your family member's or friend's diabetes (or other condition - here's an example of one for breast cancer). They'll be showcasing a new comic every month. It's an ongoing process, so submit yours any time by emailing the HC team HERE. I'll be on the lookout for you all!
