I was diagnosed with type 1 diabees when I was 2 yrs old. We think I may have had it earlier thant that.
My father was in the Navy and my mother luckily had her mother living upstairs. Evidently I never slept . I was whining or crying continuously.
My mother called the family Dr. He told her all I neede was a good spanking. Boy was he on target!!!
My mother wrote to Senator John F Kennedy to have my father discharged to come home. My brother has the original letters that were sent from JFK to my mother.
My father was sent home. I ended up in the Chelsea Naval Hospital.
I’m not quitesure how but I was sent to the Joslin Clinic in Boston. I have been going there ever since.
