Hi again !
Guitarist yes - diabetic no !
My experience comes from living with a type 1
diabetic,and being the objective one - and the one who had to witness all the shocks
and helping out especially checking bloodsugar,this is where it comes from.
Doctors told my then-girlfriend that she had a year left to live.
That was in 1988 - guess who's still alive ?
Blind though - I hate doctors who hand out deathsentences !!!
The only time I was wrong when I accidentally
put salt instead of sugar in a glass of milk
,"shocking" people are not rational and you have to be a bit pushy : Come on drink it !
thankfully I found out what was wrong .
