The other day I was surprised to read someone with Type 1 saying, "diabetes will eventually kill me, anyway." Then a lot of other people agreed.


Am I the only one who doesn't think diabetes will eventually kill me?

Yeah, diabetes will eventually kill you unless something like a car accident gets you first. How far from now that happens it adjustable though.

Complications from diabetes is what is more likely to kill diabetics. Not diabetes itself.

Christine - I guess I disagree. Besides, I was denied life insurance based on my other conditions, not the diabetes.

Cody - True, but I think that's what they meant.

I've always believed that chances are "complications from diabetes" will be listed among my causes of death, barring accident. Of course, part of that has to do with the fact that most docs blame the diabetes for what ails ya, I'm sure they blame it for what kills ya.

What is wrong with people?

Diabetes will not kill me.

Who thinks that way?

I used to think diabetes would eventually kill me, which was my basis for not doing what I needed to to take care of myself...heck, why bother, right??

Diabetes will be hard to manage and sure does take a lot of my time, and I may get complications, but I am going to believe with all I have, that diabetes is NOT a death sentence...it is a life sentence, and I intend to LIVE!!
