[IP] Re: holding off cuz of diabetes



I agree with not letting diabetes stop me from doing what I want to do.

That being said, I remember a couple of times when I put myself and others 
at risk because I didn't think enough about the diabetes.

Excitement and hypoglycemia have very similar physical feelings for 
me.  Racing a car (solo II) is not safe without being sure it's ONLY 
excitement....

For me it comes down to a simple question:  Will I have the energy to do 
both diabetes and ____________?  An unsaid part of that question is the 
willingness to accept any consequences that may happen if I choose to 
"ignore some aspects" of the diabetes. And, idealistically, to have no 
regrets for my choices.

Take what you like and leave the rest,

Jim S.
