Hi! I found this site today, I have spent the last 3 years in denial, I knew it would happen, my Dad is a severe diabetic, my mom was diagnosed, my moms Dad died from diebetes, and my Dad's mom had it too.
I haven't taken any medication for a year now because I have no insurance.
My Dad's diabetes is taking pieces of his foot away. My mom totally ignored it and died of Lung Cancer at 55. Her Dad died at 60. My dad's mom lived with hers till she died at 78 from an overdose given after knee surgery in the hospital.
But I still ignore my own diebetes!! WHY?? I am 40, I weigh 250lbs and smoke more than a pack a day. Guess you could say I am commiting suicide slowly!!
But how can you get the medicine you need when you loose insurance??
