Some say that my comments \ information are either too long, harsh or " philosophical ".
Everything except educational and informative.

This is nothing compared to the complications of Diabetes, the failings of the Healthcare System and lack of Social Awareness Worldwide concerning Diabetes.

Here is an open question to all:
(please feel free to comment)

Why is there such a great fear of Education and Awareness, coupled with Acceptance of the Facts pertaining to Diabetes ?

Hoping, wishing and praying won't make it disappear or go away silently, education will at least give you a better understanding.

"Why is there such a great fear of Education and Awareness, coupled with Acceptance of the Facts pertaining to Diabetes ? "

Because diabetes research and understanding is in it's infancy. It's hard for professionals to educate completely based on educated guesses, that filters down to the patients. The lack of awareness is not limited to diabetes, diseases, religion, politics, pretty much anything has the same awareness problems.
