Hi everybody. I haven't actually been diagnosed as diabetic yet but i'm scared senseless i came across this site while looking for information.
I have been diagnosed as having Necrobiosis Lipoidica after being referred to a dermatologist by my doctor. The dermatologist said this is rare in non diabetics and i should be tested.
My problem is i've avoided going for the tests mainly because i have a severe phobia when it comes to needles and especially blood tests. I know this is stupid but i convinced myself that if i was diabetic something would have went badly wrong by now.
I became ill at a friends house the other day something which has been happening quite often over the last few months. My friends partner is diabetic he immediately asked if i was diabetic.When i explained the way i felt when this hits me he said i had described exactly what happens to him when he has a hypo?
Sorry this is such a long post i know i need to get tested but i'm absolutely terrified of the test and the possible result!
