You are all my people. I can’t believe it took me so long to find this thread. I grew up reading SVT, SVH, and some SVU and I still remember when I got my first Baby Sitters Club book. I used to copy down Stacey and Claudia’s outfits and do my best to recreate them. I did poorly. My favorite line, “Sheep,” Claudia replied witheringly, “Are in” 🤣
In all seriousness, I can truly thank AMM and the character of Stacey for recognizing the signs of Diabetes when I was 27. I remembered everything Stacey described and kept insisting to my family that I had diabetes, and nobody listened to me. Including my sister and stepfather who were a nurse and a doctor respectively. Meanwhile, by the time i was diagnosed I was 89 pounds and was starting to develop neuropathy in my feet. I checked myself into an eating disorder clinic and thank goodness I did because they were the ones who figured out I was Diabetic. I remember asking my endocrinologists years later if I was a brittle Diabetic and they were impressed I knew the term. Thank you, Stacey McGill!
