Marsha,

I would have to agree with them. Over the last four and a half years it has been harder to deal with the diabetes than the cancer. Diabetes affects you every second of every day - even when you are asleep. I get low blood sugars in the middle of the night that could be life threatening if I didn't wake up and get to treat them.

There is a new product (the Glucowatch) scheduled to be released some time this year which will be a real boon to diabetics. It is by no means a perfect solution, but it will allow somewhat continuous monitoring of blood sugar using a watch-like device that measures sugar (without a finger stick) every 20 minutes. Despite its shortcomings, it will certainly be a help to me and countless diabetics. - robin
