I have a kit for making dolls of doctors into which any medical device
which has been used on oneself can be inserted (as painfully as
possible) for their OWN enjoyment. I also am an expert at choosing
the WRONG site for an IV so if anyone needs advice as to what'll be
worse for them than what they did to .....

I'll give you many points on this, but, again, if a Doctor don't know
he shouldn't fake it. I have (thank G-d) had doctors tell me they
didn't know, weren't sure, etc and that I should get to an xxxxx or
maybe ask xxxxx about things. I've also had doctors who 'promised' a
'cure' (sorry, no money back guarentees).

Absolutely. Bless his name that we are here today and NOT 35 years
ago (and if anyone wants to know the difference, please feel free to
send an e-mail to me).
I am firmly of the belief that nothing is of chance, that G-d makes
all things happen to the tiniest of degree. Why one has diabetes and
one does not most of us cannot guess but I would venture to say that
all of us could find SOMEthing that happened (or didn't) due to it
that we would be awefully unthankfull for had it occured. I also have
found most long term diabetics have a much different view of life than
others (as I've told many people: most people have to THINK and ACT to
commit suicide. I have to THINK and ACT to stop my body from it).
