We as Diabetics with Neuropathy can have a similar condition, except ours is not controlled by a season. We do not need winter to appear to feel numb; Neuropathy can make us go numb at any point of a day. Our lack of feeling can cause us much pain should something happen that we are unaware of. We also have this emotional numbness at times; some may call it depression, numbness, apathy. We deal with so much pain and other irritants that sometimes we just shut down completely and do not want to speak to the outside world.
I went on a church outing with my son a few weeks ago and while we were out I apparently hit something very sharp with my left leg. One of the guys asked me how my pants leg got ripped and then said the words I dread to hear “Are you bleeding?” Wonderful Neuropathy numbing strikes again; I never knew I got cut let alone the fact that I was bleeding and enough to stain the color of my jeans. So I am curious to find out what you all believe Pain vs. Numbness from the Neuropathy which is better?
Send me a response let me know what you feel. I am really interested how everyone feels about this. Do you feel the pain of Diabetic neuropathy is better to have than the numbness?
