My name is Rita and I am a 44 year old person who is a diabetic since I was 1 years old. I still have good health including my sight. I still have great feeling in my feet as well. I do think I am very blessed because most most people who have had diabeties as long as I have are not as lucky. I am twice blessed with two children whom do not have diabeties. I am however thankful that I got diabeties at such a young age because it is the only life I know. Don't get me wrong, I do get angry about checking my sugars or some times watching what I have to eat or not eat. I am however lucky because I can control diabeties unlike some other things out there that a person can not control. I just want to say trust your doctors, nurces and Dietitians.
