After reading this article a shiver ran through me…then I broke down. I just cant take it anymore. I should clarify that I got adult onset diabetes (T1) about 6 years ago and every year since things have just gotten more and more out of control. Now I'm dealing with severe neuropathy, erectile dysfunction, and constant diarrhea. I've just had it and reading this article only drove home the graveness of my situation. There is just no quality of life left. I lie down for 10 minutes then have to stand…I stand for to long I have to sit. I dont know what else to say or do anymore. I was hospitalized last January for ketoacidosis and spent a lovely 7 days in ICU. It wrecked my teeth, destroyed my bowels and now it seems all of my struggles are simply leading to a sudden end. This disease has friggin won. Thats all I can say.
