I put it down to an insecurity and tunnel-vision.

If you have nothing to fear, you can open your mind.
It is why we have some GREAT doctors, leaders in medicine and then the mediocre.

Fun part here is that my GP told someone that between me and another chap I dont know in town there is no-one better controlled and who knows more including him. He is Diabetic himself after a car accident that damaged his pancreas somehow. There are some that will learn.
Anyway I only see him or his partners for emergency things and not D. I do it myself and see the Endo once a year as a general precaution. Maybe I should spend the money and go see him more often LoL.
