Edith: My name is Edie (Edith) and I am a diabetic. I was diagnosed with diabetes after my heart attack in ‘97 and they did two stents at that time. So after that I thought, “I couldn’t be diabetic, they got it wrong,” but blood tests worked out to where, “Yes, I was diabetic,” and I went on medical pills to begin with. Well, I really wasn’t too happy, but I kind of knew it was a foregone conclusion because my sister is diabetic, my brother was diabetic, my grandfather was diabetic, so I just had a foregone conclusion that it was true. So, I’ve dealt with it, since then it has about 11 years.
