On Saturday the 19th December my oldest brother died aged 66. This was from complications of diabetes. My sister has terminal cancer. I was diagnosed with diabetes last week and both my mother and brother have died as a result of diabetes complications. I have joined a forum on diabetes issues. I am in bits over the prospect of loosing two siblings in s short space of time. I feel dizzy when I do anything or eat anything. The pain is so bad and will only get worse. I dread to think what the new year will bring. The last thing I said to my brother was that I loved him. The last time I saw him, we had a big hug.
