My fellow diabetics, watch your nerves !!!

It is starting to cool down in Seattle. I guess Summer is already nearing its end. Along with the cold in the night, I start to get numb fingers. It is quite annoying. I hate the feeling of waking up in the middle of the night and finding numb fingers or sometimes the whole hand. I tell myself to shove them in a blanket or under a pillow to warm them up, but in the back of my mind I am always thinking, is this the start of nerve damage that I hear about from all other diabetics?

It is a major stress in the back of the mind that I keep bottled up. After having discovered eye damage last year, I am always just a little scared of when and where the nerve damage is going to strike me. Irrational fear, but that is what it is.

My favorite, I guess I can call it that, site to read up on this is the http://diabetes.niddk.nih.gov/dm/pubs/neuropathies/ site.

If you can fully trust the governments word, which I sometimes do with a grain of salt, you can read up this information. I am always worried about reading things on the internet.

So all my fellow diabetics, keep your nerves. Control your sugars, exercise and no smoking !!!!
