Ohhh Jamie....it can be so so hard. I don't claim to know what you're going through, but I just want you to know that we are here for you. I want you to know that I am keeping you in thought and prayer. So many things on your plate....understandably you are overwhelmed...frightened...at your rope's end. But know that you have a family here at Tu., and though some of us may not be experiencing what YOU are going through...we nevertheless "get it". I know that everything is all muddled up right now....but you are seeking help with these complications....being treated? You are also reaching out, here at Tu....and that is great. Don't worry about the lack of frequency in coming to TuDiabetes....we may send little reminders....but we know that aside from busy lives, the mere nature of our condition causes us to have road blocks, to need to slow down. Take your time to get well...come here when you can/when you wish. There is always someone available here....take little steps, but NEVER EVER GIVE UP...and know that WE CARE!

Thank you everyone. I appreciate it. I appreciate your thoughts and prayers. it gets very tough sometimes, and I get to the point of wishing God would take me home sometimes, I know how that sounds. I'm just tired of suffering.
I'm going to see a different primary care doctor soon, and i hope she will be able to help. i just recently started seeing a new cardiologist, and a pain management doctor, so i'm hoping I will get some results there.
Take care,
