I have been Type 1 diabetic for 44 years. Since having children 22 years ago I have had huge problems with hypos. They are frequent and aggressive despite specialist treatment at a top hospital. I have been declared unfit for work by my GP and have had my driving licence revoked again earlier this year. Having tried to go out and earn a living which ended badly due to to many hypos I have been called Lazy by a loved one. So what am I supposed to do if I am unfit to drive and unfit to work? On a positive note I am being considered for Islets transplantation as there are no other options as optimum health care has not eased this issue. Any suggestions?
