Henry, thank you for sharing your story.
To all frustrated with living with diabetes, seek camaraderie with the DOC, "diabetes online community" where people with diabetes, and people with loved ones with diabetes, support one another through the challenges of daily life with vacillating blood glucose levels ,to get the very best care (switching endocrinologists, finding excellent diabetes educators, etc.). There are many bloggers and and people on Twitter who interact with and have true understanding and empathy for one another. On Wednesday nights from 9-10 p.m. eastern, there is a #DSMA (Diabetes Social Media Advocates) chat on Twitter where you can meet so many wonderful people who "get it" and are there to assist people in living their best life with diabetes. Recently there was a "Diabetes Art Day" inspired by a wonderful art therapist and you can see the expression of diabetes by in art by the DOC here: http://www.thebuttercompartment.com/?page_… . You are not alone.
