I sorry everyone misunderstood me. It is not that I worked for a company that did not give me time off and that was 20 yrs ago. It's that I did not get any Diabetes Education. Where I live education for anything either cost money or you have to travel to get in a classes. Classes are not on going and some are only at night. So we need more classes or the good news is with internet hopefully we can rely on group support and become connected with learning to manage and control our diabetes. It still more important to ask your doctor. being a senior I done know what is old age dry skin or get up in the middle of the night? and/or what is diabetes?. If there anything new I could ask my doctor to aid me? medication and/or products? that where a support group can help. Thing have also change in the last 20 years. one big change is your level were 140 before you were a diabetic I now I meet people who level is 120. We also did not have a 5 min A1C my first time getting tested it was a 6 hr glucose tolerance test. (not fun) I am looking forward to share our knowledge. I also had Gestational Diabetes 40 years ago So I can tell you there been some real big changes.
