Losing someone is always tough. But the Diabetes Community has lost some incredible men and women recently, people who've touched countless lives and brought happiness to this world while being tireless advocates in their own respective corners.
These untimely deaths can really get to those of us People With Diabetes, even though these individuals may be strangers to us for all practical purposes. Some others have touched on this beautifully recently, such as Kerri's post "Broken Rules" over at Six Until Me and Kelly's post "Sadness, Regret, Anger" over at Diabetesaliciousness. Their writing hit home and it's true those losses got to me, but honestly the most recent loss earlier this week has pushed me to the edge. It not only saddens me, but enrages me to the point of wanting to question and cry and ponder why we're all faced with this chronic condition in the first place.
