I have a question for those of you who are longtime diabetics. First, I was diagnosed back on May 9. 2009. I am still kind of coming to grips with my life with Diabetes. Don't get me wrong, I am ecstatic with the progress I have made in bringing my Blood Sugar down and my A1C to a normal level. I am just wondering what this will all mean to me 10, 15, 20 years down the road assuming I can keep my Blood Sugar under control. In effect, what has it meant to you, your life, your way of interacting with the world? How has it affected your life beyond what everyone sees? Do you fear for the future, do you try to just block it out and go day to day? Do you feel you are much different as a person now that you were before diabetes? Sorry to ask so many questions....just curious.
