I've always wanted to work in the healthcare sector, even before I got diabetes. I toyed around with the ideas of being a paramedic and being a nurse. I still haven't fully decided what I wanted to do yet but I am going to college in September to start training to be a nurse. At the end of this course I have to decided what I want, wether to go onto further studies to be a nurse or further studies to be a paramedic. In Ireland, right now you cannot drive an ambulance if you are diabetic. But I think you can be a paramedic that doesn't drive. I'm not sure, but if I do go down that route, I will go as far as I can until they try to stop me, and then I will fight.

Does anybody know if a diabetic can become a paramedic?

I think if you want to be an endo , go for it ( know what to expect- lots of years of study) I find it's great when we deal with people that truly knows what it's like to be D.

For my part Im an actor and visual artist ; i get alot of contracts but no health benefice and cant count on unstable work. I wonder if any of you have this situation. I am now starting a study program in art therapy and have to come to term with what i need to to vs. what i want to do.
