Re: [IP] Diabetes and the military

I also have a story I have not yet told you.  You know that the military
misdiagnosed me, thought I was a type 2 for about two years, then I went in
to DKA, they then had the nerve to investigate me for a line of duty---which
is basically a misconduct investigation.  They thought it was something that
I had done and was going to discharge me with nothing...What a
shock...learning I had type 1--then being kicked out of the military as if I
was a problem in the Air Force.  Everything did all work out for my benefit,
however it was different that someone could even think this was my fault.
