im a software programmer. in the last year i got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, neuropathy, lost a job, got and got dumped. i lost about 50 pounds before i realized i had diabetes, the doctor didn't pick it up somehow. i did get a new job, but the drugs from the neuropathy mess me up pretty badly considering i have to be able to think for a living. i don't really have any family, and i'm finding it is getting hard to even care much about controlling it, except that it causes a lot of pain. and i don't tolerate most of the things they try to give me for the neuropathy. they don't stop pain they just make me sick.
