I'm worried I may be experiencing some complications so I'm curious to hear what complications you guys have experienced and how they started.

I have been a diabetic for over 20 years and thank God up to this point, I am complication free.

That's great to hear**** I'm assuming you've just taken really good care of your diabetes and kept everything under pretty good control??

I wish I could say that was the case. I am very lucky as my sugars have always gone up and down.

My sugars have always been really high, since day one, and I haven't done a very good job of taking care of it so I'm getting extremely worried about complications :(

We all should be worried about complications. Now is the time to start getting them under control. Do you have a doctor that you feel comfortable with ?

I just got health insurance for the first time in 3 years so I haven't seen a doctor in quite a while.
