Re: [IP] Re: Diabetes Burnout



I think these comments were compeletely uncalled for.  What people meant was
that after living with diabetes for an extended period of time it is tiring.
You are tired of the endless routine of blood tests, shots, carb couting,
etc.  They didn't say they were giving up. Everyone has a right to their
feelings.  My son has had diabetes for only a year, and sometimes I FEEL
burned out on giving shots, worrying, testing, testing, testing.  I have a
right to my feelings and so does the rest of this group without anyone
telling us to get over it.  I am sure we are all glad to be alive, but that
doesn't erase the fact that the endless routine gets old.  I hope not to
offend anyone but maybe you should read over your emails before you send
them to make sure they are not EXTREMELY offensive.
