Hi everyone I've been a diabetic for over 32 years, and yes I still suck at it. It beats me all the time, but every once in awhile I surprise diabetes! I lost the feeling of my sugars 4 years ago which for me has been the worse, because I can be anywhere, anyplace and it happens! No matter what I do to control it.

My life with diabetes has been a difficult one, heart attack, pacemaker on board, nueropathy of the lower extremities - severe!, and I can honestly say the worse of it in the bloody fibromyalgia mixed with the neurapathy - it knocks me out!

Anyways just wanted to let the young people know who have been diagnosed with diabetes - take care of yourself NOW - it hits you later with a punch you could never believe.

Yes go to parties and if you need a drink - have it! just don't overdue its not worth it.....
