I respect your feelings to disregard the post but just know that it's okay to vent sometimes. There are folks from all over the world on here and many share similar experiences. I have lost loved ones from diabetes, so if it's okay, i'm going to say "Diabetes SUCKS!!!"

Take care and know that you're not alone.

Having lost circulation to my lower leg below knee for some months .
I sympathise and agree very painful and although different some similar results occur .
I on one hand could feel the wounds caused by no circulation iirc diabetes sufferers can't which leads to infected wounds.
Although that's just one aspect and its on the rise too .
Whatever situation caused you to post you have my thoughts .

Sorry to see this post, as I suspect it comes with some pain on your part. I've been living with Diabetes for about 13 years now. It sucks always being slaved to my insulin pump, but with a little bit of education and some determination to stay on top of things you can make it so it doesn't stand in the way of too many things in your life.

This is a great place to vent and talk about things in life. We all love
knives, but we all have families and lives and understand that life doesn't
always deal everyone with the same hand.

The things that don't kill you, make you stronger as they say, and anyone
suffering from things such as diabetes have a certain inner strength that
keeps them going. It isn't easy and some days are worse than others.

Hang in there and take care.

My brother has type 1 and my aunt did as well. She didn't take care of herself, but diabetes was the main complicating factor in her shorter-than-average life.

I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about a year and a half ago. I take it as a challenge. On a funny note, if I run out of lancets I can use my Southard as the tip of the blade is accessible when closed.

Don't let the disease beat you.
