Thank you, Lizanne, for your information. My doctor said the same thing really that you did about
neuropathy. She said I was probably worrying about
nothing really. It is just good to hear is from someone else with diabetes and neuropathy rather than the doctor, I guess. Even though the doctor is supposed to be the expert, like you said, it is not textbook. I went to my first local support group meeting last night and then came home and found this forum and I have really enjoyed reading the posts. I have never wanted to be a part of a support group or get newsletters or anything having to do with diabetes because I have really been angry about
having it. I am more accepting of it now because of this numb spot on my toe and I realized that diabetes can have real complications. I do have good control and that is the part that is so frustrating. I have taken good care of myself and I may still have complications one day. Anyway - I am glad to have found this site. I did have a healthy baby girl 22 months ago. She was perfect and healthy and I am so thankful for her. My pregnancy went along just fine. They do know so much and can do so much now and that is very encouraging. Oh - I have had Grave's for just a year now and I honestly don't even know much about
it besides the basics. I really do need to educate myself on it, though. Thank you!
