Just a short while ago I thought my life was over!
I felt I had no one who understood what I was going through. So much anguish/worry.
In ten years I had no support for my unstable D2/T2diabetes! Never heard of an Endo, or any specialist of any kind!
Due to Necrosis the hospital here in Spain were talking about either pinning my left ankle rigid or removing my foot! Having been action man all my life, and with 66 years under my belt, and having had 2 heart attacks I was seriously contemplating my future! I found this site through desperation and within hours people where connecting with ,me.
At first I did not have a clue what they were talking about, but we soon got through that. Now folk from this site actually initiate contacts to ask how I am! I now understand the relationship I needed between myself and my meter. My diet is progressing. I'm feeling positive and have today insisted my local doctor refers me to a specials for the problems I have with my feet/legs, eye's and diet! Spain can be very 3rd world inland. However this site has given me the knowledge and encouragement so I can stand up for myself medically. Everyone who has written here has helped me, so thank you. I'm getting my life back.
