Today is an Input day. Speak up everyone

Hello everyone, I have been thinking of writing for the last few days but could not settle on a subject. I know I have promised information on the pump system, however it does not feel right at this time. So I have decided to discuss what is currently on my mind. Today I answered a question on one of the sites I follow regarding Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN). The site was asking how many of us suffer from DPN and if we discuss it with our doctor.

I can honestly say I do discuss it with my Doctor in fact I was just in his office yesterday letting him know the medicine is no longer covering the pain. I sit here today with my feet on fire and my arm tingling down to the fingertips. I am exhausted from the pain and yet I have no break. In less than an hour I will clock back into work and sit for four hours and listen to customers be upset over the issues while I try to sound like I am smiling and not admit I want to cry.

All of this aside I realized other than discussing my pain I have not asked if any of you know about Neuropathy. So today is a fill in day for you let me know what you understand about the disease that is Neuropathy.

Part of what I want to do is educate people on both the Diabetes and the Neuropathy. So please even if you do not have either condition let me know what you know about the subject. I want to see what direction we need to go to teach everyone what people with Neuropathy truly deal with.
