    Forgive me for contacting you but I discovered your blog today and I wanted to bring your attention to DAFNE’s e-petition asking the government to roll out funding across the country so that the DAFNE intensive insulin therapy courses are available to all diabetics. With this in mind maybe you would consider blogging about it? I give you the link so that you can see the petition. It needs 100,000 signatures but is sadly lacking at the moment. http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/41345
    All the best

    Hello Grumpy Pumper,
    After reading your blog, I feel that you are a perfect person to ask a favour of (although I hope this doesn’t make you any more grumpy!). My name is Harriet Bridges. I am a 25 year old T1 diabetic, and am currently doing some unpaid health psychology research regarding diabetes. I am trying to get as many people with diabetes to complete an online survey, and am hoping that the results from these surveys might be able to highlight the importance of psychological support (in every capacity) for individuals with diabetes. PLEASE (if you could spare a few minutes) could you fill the survey in for me: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/important-diabetes-survey. I would be UNBELIEVABLY grateful!

      Would you like me to tweet the link to see if any other PWDs would like to do the survey?
