  • Juvenile Onset Diabetic Nominated to Supreme Court

    Juvenile-onset diabetic (and Nancy Drew lover) Judge Sonia Sotomayor was just nominated by President Obama to the U.S. Supreme Court.  Judge Sotomayor was diagnosed with diabetes at age 8 and apparently, fortunately, with a mom as a nurse.  She was told she could not be a police officer or private investigator due to her diabetes.  She was told to downgrade her aspirations … there’s a downgrade; Second Circuit  Court, US District Appellate Court Judge and potentially, Supreme Court Justice.


    I do not know any more about her than what I just heard but I obviously, can’t help but say “go girl.”  I sure can’t be prouder that one of "us" has ignored the ominous beliefs of juvenile onset diabetes and kicked butt and be nominated to one of the most important positions in the country!!!  Go Judge Sotomayor.

    I agree with you JujuPhi!  I think having diabetes has made me do things that others might not consider doing.  Not exactly sure why it causes us to do this - I'm not a head shrink.   Perhaps it's to prove to the world that we can do anything that we set our minds too!!!  Nothing can stop us - whoo! whoo!

    I second that, Doris!!  She is an incredibly intelligent person and I am confident that Diabetes only made her a stronger person!  Go Judge Sotomayor!!!
