Do you live with someone who has diabetes? Or date someone with the disease? Tell us about it. What kind of experiences have you had? Any advice for others? Any heartbreaks or chuckles to share?

This is an official call for submissions to the Diabetic Partner Follies, a series created hereDancing_mannequins at DiabetesMineâ„¢ in 2006 to give a voice to the partners of the PWDs (people with diabetes). Anything you want to say is welcome, either under your real name or anonymous, as you please. You can also submit photos and/or graphics to accompany your post.
