Hi friend. I know what you're talking about. I have my parents and a brother. My parents and myself all have different autoimmune diseases. We are the ones that lived healthy, lived right, ate the right things., etc. My brother does nothing right, everything wrong, and he is in perfect health. Leaves me scratching my head. Guess it's good it's the 3 of us and not him. He would never take care of himself. Hugs friend! Angie

When I shared the example of my brother that was just a fraction of the deaths in my family due to diabetes. 9 years ago my mom past, 3 years later my father, 2 years after that my brother. I am ok after those losses just to share with the community my reasoning concerning good people. Be aware they did a lackluster job fighting the disease. I was my fathers caregiver till his death. i had to make the decision for my mom to expire in hospice.My brother lost his mind refusing my visits till his death. I'm very thankful to have you all as a second family to share ways to keep me informed and on the right track. This post was not to seek pity but to raise awareness and to be reached. Believe me the lord has provided me a wonderful life,and I'm thankful to share this to my diabetic family.

Baron sorry for all your losses and I do understand how you feel. I have been through the same type… both my parents and I have also lost 2 daughters. So I know how hard life can be. Maybe thats why my diabetes does not seem like the worst thing in the world to me, because for me it isn't.
You seem to have dealt with all of it well so I 'am glad for you.I know being diabetic is not easy but it could always be worse. Best wishes to you.

Baron,
I am only a cargiver to 2 with Type II. I have ask," Why me, before." I suffered an injury, almost 14 yrs. ago. This injury completely destroyed my spine, from top to bottom. I deal with this everyday, and feel, that I am very fortunate, not to have to deal with diabetes. I look at my disability, as, it could be worst, and this is the hand I was dealt. Do not feel shame, for asking, Why me. We ALL have asked that question! But our health problems, make us stronger people.
Sorry to hear of your brother.
HUGS,
Cyndi

Baron I just look at it this way: there was a time when more people died of things like diabetes, cancer andother diseases because there was no awareness of them, or no tests or no drugs or no cures…I consider myself lucky that I found out that I have diabetes and that there is something I can do about it so that I can live longer and enjoy life and feel better!! I hope you see it this way too someday and I am sorry for whatever made you feel so bad…I hope tomorrow is a better day for you!

actually it's not that i was feeling bad, I have a brother that had diabetes with and addition of other illnesses that later took his life about three years ago. He would always look at me and ask me that question. Now that was about 8 years ago. At the time I never had and answer for him. I've only been diagnosed for 5 years, and i'm dealing with it ok. I always thought heavy on the question after his passing.

It's kind of like asking why an innocent child has to die - sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to it, unfortunately it just happens. I am sorry about your brother, and I can understand your asking that question…I hope you find peace.

it is just in our genetics. i feel that way sometimes too but that is the way life is we have to grim and bear it. other people may have other burdens that we don't know about. god does not give us what we can not handle although we wonder what the perpuse of his message is. he is trying to tell us something some time we wonder what it is.

Hello baron, Its not that bad things happen to good people, its that life happens to us all. SOme of us will have issues that no other person around us will have. Its said that 89% of males age 80 will have colon cancer, but only 1 % of them will die of it. The other 99 % will just live with it. Its a roll of the dice. Enjoy life as much as you can. Good Luck.

Interesting topic.
I agree with the statement that if all problems were in a pile, we would go home with the ones we came with. Those, we know how to handle.
I am a firm believer that all equals out in the end. If there is an afterlife, some people are in for a real shock.
Think how boring life would be without challenges.

FIRST OF ALL IT SEEMS LIKE NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO YOU CAN'T GET YOUR HEALTH RIGHT, AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT PEOPLE WITH NO HEALTH CHALLENGES THEY CAN EAT ANYTHING AND NO HEALTH ISSUES THEY DO EVEN EXERCISE. GO FIGURE.

You can't tell what's going on with somebody by looking at them.

I forget who said it but if everyone put their problems in a pile and were asked to take a problem out of the pile, everyone would go home with the same problems they came with.
