Richard! I did not know you'd been able to counteract the dizzy spells - that's WONDERFUL! Yes, you're far too young to be slowing down! (and we remembered your birthday!)

Sept 10 was my birthday, 72 years old. Today (Sept 15) completes my 66'th year of T1. I am sill healthy and do not have any diabetes related complications, except for mild nerve damage. There had been a diagnosis of autonomic neuropathy, but that is false. My cutting down on my BP med to minimum dosage has almost eliminated my dizziness, and my BP is still good. I do not have symptoms of autonomic neuropathy now.

Working out at a gym 3 days per week has greatly increased my stamina and given me some extra muscle. I painted two sides of my house this summer. I know I will start to slow down one of these years, but I hope it will not be any time soon.

Richard,
You are an inspiration to millions. You are not going to slow down any time soon. As was said earlier, you're far too young.

Thanks for being around !

Tony
