AS I KNOW I HAVE DIABETERS 2 FOR A LONG TIME , I HAVE BEEN MORE AWARE OF HOW MUCH DIABETES HAS COME INTO EVERYDAY LIFE , SOMETIMES I LOOK AROUND AND SEE OTHER PEOPLE MAY HAVE IT. THE QUESTION I KEEP ASK MYSELF , HOW DO YOU TELL SOMEONE , WHO YOU WORK WITH , THEN MAY BE DIABETES . I AM NOT A DOCTOR. SO WHAT DO I DO .............. ANY IEADS
  2. It seems that Diabetes in the work place is not allow . After trying to get help , with the company i work for , the only advice , i was thing i was told , was to eat Mars bars , my boss did not know what he was talking about . This just part of the things , people with Diabetes have to face in the workplace on a daily struggle , to allow to work . Why is it , that people who want to work , can not get support for the compaines , then work for .In the law , then rules which goven this part of our lives , but it seems the law is not allways play out , to the benfit of the people ,it is then to help .
  3. I AM 60 IN MAY , BE TOLD LIFE STARTS AT 60 . MAYBE IT DOES , I HOPE SO ., AT 60 YOUR NOT TO HAVE A SEX LIFE. BUT I THINK THAT IF YOUR 60 , WITH DIABETES , YOU SHOULD LIVE LIFE TO THE FULL, GO OUT ENJOY IT TO THE FULL , EVEN GET A NEW WIFE , SHOW THAT YOUR ALIVE AND NOT GOING TO SINK IN TO A ARMCHAIR , WATCH TV AND SMOKE A PIPE . (IF THAT IS ALLOW) .. WHEN I FRIST FOUND I DIABETES 2 , THOUGTH MY LIFE WAS OVER , BUT I HAVE FOUND OUT , THE WAY TO GO THOUGTH THE REST OF YOUR LIFE , IS TO LIVE IT , NOT LETTING ANYTHING GET IN YOUR WAY.
