The C Word (Diabetes Complications) by Ninjabetic

“My first experience of discussing diabetes complications was, shall we say, less than adequate. I was 16 years old and had been newly diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. I don’t remember many conversations I had around diabetes but what I do remember is the feeling of fear, closely followed by withdrawal, after THAT conversation. I was told of the complications that I could experience almost as soon as I walked into the room and not much else.”
