Billy – His Story
Hey Bret…I found out I was type 1 diabetic 23 years ago when I was 18…. and I was bummed! It was 1988 and I remember that first week after finding out that I was diabetic I somehow found out that you were also. I was already a huge Poison fan and from that day on after knowing that you were a diabetic also…..in some weird way it made it kinda cool. I know that sounds crazy, but it eased my mind and made me see that I can deal with this. You’ve pretty much been my “Diabetic Inspiration” I guess is the word for it, but just knowing that someone like yourself can deal with it and enjoy life really gave me some much needed hope back then. I’ve got two daughters that are around your daughters age also and they can sometimes make the blood sugars go crazy!! So anyways, I’m still a fan….keep on keepin’ on and let’s fight this disease. Hopefully in our lifetime we’ll see a cure. Take care !
