My husband is the diabetic, and I am the caretaker, but because of my doctors it is making it harder.
I have been seeing specialists for over a year for neurological problems of my own which through the year have reduced the quality of my life over 50%. I am not crying over this;; I just want other people to know; Don't let the doctors' put you off, Don't wait for a test to be performed for scheduling months ahead, or the results to be read months after. Stay on the doctor or doctors, or find a new one, and get the answers you need before you have to suffer further complications that can not be reversed. And if you suspect a problem, see someone right away. Do not put it off; I was second guessing what I was feeling, denying that it was actually happening to me, or just saying I am too active for this, and pass it on. My husband kept telling me to go to the doctors, but I always feel I am just imaging things and am embarassed that it will be nothing. My mental illness makes it worse, because, unfortunately I am labeled, and offer doctors won't look any further. Be insistent, and if you are not, at least listen to people who has suggested that they have noticed something and look into it right away. I do not know how long I will even be able to see to type anymore. I just hope that I can afford a special computer for all that, because that is all the connection I have had with the world lately. Don't Put it off, Don't wait, be relentless, Get answers now. I read Richards' post about what he was experiencing and that prompted this discussion. Thanks for reading. Claudia
