Re: [IP] re: optimism, medic alert, and insurance...



Dear Eileen, I know exactly what u r saying. I've been diabetic 27yrs and
often realize I am living on borrowed time.  Unless one experiences those
feelings its hard to make others understand.  I do not plan for the
future...such as investments, retiring etc because I suppose I think that
time can not possibly come to pass, however just think about it....we have
had this disease all these years and r still going strong so who knows we
may get old and gray after all.  I too work in the medical field, Im an reg
nurse on the kidney dialysis floor so I see mostly diabetic patients with
severe problems....but we have made it past the normal time frame for kidney
failure and other problems to occur....so hang in there....u r not
alone.........sincerely cathy
