Sorry I haven't visited for some time.
After summer 2014, when we sailed right around Britain together in an ancient fishing boat for the Tall Ships race, Jay became unwell - excessive thirst - and Mum thought his breath smelled funny, so we took him to the doctors and he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, which was obviously a big setback. Since then he has been very good with his self-injections twice a day, but there are definitely some negative side-effects: a mixture of behavioral and physical symptoms, such as sleeplessness, rudeness, and withdrawal. It has been a lot of worry and hard work.

Sorry to hear this. Our thoughts are with you and Jay. Sometimes these things happen out of the blue, for no reason. Good luck with it all, and congratulations re the sailing trip - sounds great!
