For diabetics there are a lot of fear factors surrounding the disease. blindness, loss of limbs, kidney problems, stroke, and so on.
Personally, when I started to read about diabetes I became very scared of what "could" happen.
I hope this thread will help others in some way. What is your worst fear? I hope that by people posting about what scares them, they can get over it and conquer the fear. For me, its loosing a foot. Having a bad heart along with diabetes is scary. I have times when I get lazy with my foot care and my Jimminy Cricket tells me that I should not do this. Yup, I get lazy. But not for long. I remember seeing my grandmother in the hospital when I was younger all tied up with tubes and no leg. I do not want to be my grandmother! So, I do my homework and read about foot care all the time.
How does a diabetic not let diabetic fears over take them?
