Friendly neighborhood police

Those unfortunates who suffer from type 1 diabetes mellitus have a lot to put up with. Lifelong dietary restriction, daily injections, hypoglycaemic attacks and all the complications that go with the disease. It’s also unfair in that even the best control of blood sugar levels is no guarantee against these complications.

So you would have thought that diabetics have enough on their plate. But no, throw  human ignorance and prejudice into the mix and things can be even worse.

  1. Think being black may have compounded the situation. The EU is trying to do the same to all of us T1DMs in terms of dragging us all out of cars :-( Gonna make being a singles handed GP slightly tricky with no licence. Have to get on me bike I guess.
