Yep, there is a stereotype of T2 diabetes as something that only strikes the sedentary and the obese. Tain't so; they may be more predisposed to developing it but I know a fair number of folks who have it that are anything *but* overweight.

One of the most frustrating things about the OP's situation (at least it would be for me) is the uncertainty of where health care reform is headed. Yeah, COBRA will be there for 18 months if one can afford it, but after that? Who knows what the market place will look like then, or what new laws will come into play. The uncertainty of it would drive me crazy, I think.

"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
