The Picture of Success!

So I am a cover boy. A sex symbol, if you will. :-)
I'm on the cover of this month's issue of Diabetes Forecast Magazine. As if being the cover model wasn't enough, they have "SUCCESS!" plastered across my scrawny shoulders. How am I supposed to live up to that?
In truth, I've been somewhat successful in having a hobby, in staying alive and relatively free of diabetic complications. But there are so many things that I'm struggling with from day to day, that I hardly ever think of myself as successful.
But I'm happy. I'm still working at all of those things I don't feel I've succeeded at yet. Maybe being here to struggle, to put up a fight, is a success in itself.
If you're reading this, please let me know what you think.

Very cool stuff Jerry!

I haven't read the mag yet, but I do think that living happily and fairly healthily with diabetes is success!

Congrats on becoming a cover model Jerry! I wonder why my subscription spontaneously ended a few months back...

I only hope to keep as healthy as you are as time passes.

1.) I didn't know you had a new blog!
2.) I didn't know you were on the cover of DF (I really need to start reading it again)
3.) I'm wicked jealous of the MGD deal..

Congrats on all 3!

Or maybe I should say... I didn't know you were updating the blog... either way, you're in the blogroll now.
