RE: [IP] tired
I must be nuts. Who would I be, if I did not have diabetes? I would be a very
foolish person trusting every freakin' doctor I met. I am very grateful for the
knowledge I have learned and still learning because of it. It kind of scares me
not having it, I'm so used to it 50 and counting. Even though I have traveled a
little to Haiti, D.C. , Florida, once to Paris August 2001, Maine and soon to
Boston/Joslin in July. I can't say I ever used my diabetes as a crutch, but I do
have a fear of traveling alone. But I can't really say that I regret getting it.

I go through this as well. I am 42 and was diagnosed when I was ten. I
find the older I get the more juggling I have to do with the diabetes and
the more frustrated I get with it. When I go through periods of wanting to
give up and be "normal", I first have a good cry and then I think of the
early years with the disease and how it was impossible to control it with
the type of insulin's and having to pee on a stick to see if you had sugar
in your urine or the needles that felt like they were made for an animal
they were so big. Wow! have we come a long way since then! Your not alone
Sue, we all go through this and have to feel sorry for ourselves for a bit
and then shake ourselves off and keep going! Hope you have a better day!
