  • Finger pricking, injections. That’s part of it, but for me it’s the psychological aspects that are not sufficiently recognised. It really gets you down. Alos, let’s not forget that it’s rarely diabetes alone. Mine is complicated by heart disease – helped by a pacemaker – kidney disease, high blood pressure and, appropriately, Gout!
    I have no complaints about my GP, nor the three consultants who look after me at Addenbrookes and Papworth but too much time is taken up by the endless bureaucracy and the lack of coordination. As I said it all gets you down and affects your relationships, your friends and family as well as my ability to go to by elections!
