RE: [IP] Re: Driving

Diabetes is  a disease not a disability unless you are unable to work
because of it's complications.

Do they tell people who have cancer, aids and a million other diseases that
they can't drive?  No!

I would check back with your state and the people who issue driver's
licenses.  If you can prove that you have good b.g. control and check your
b.g. often then there is no reason why they would deny you a license.

If you continue to have problems then I would suggest you contacting
American Diabetes Assn. They have attorneys who volunteer their time working
towards getting things for diabetics.

Good luck Jenn.
