Thank you for the recommendation regarding the book. I will certainly check it out.
The burning/electrical sensations have returned and I've been dealing with it pretty well for the most part. When this hit last month I was not eating, having trouble sleeping, getting dry heaves, and an occasional crying fit. Frankly, I became physically and emotionally drained with putting myself through this. I have finally accepted the fact that I have to deal with it, be patient, and wait to see what the doctor(s) say(s). Sure, the anxiety still comes up at times, but I'm doing my best to control it.
This is a place I can come to and not drive myself crazy with what I read. I was doing all sorts of reading online about neuropathy and diabetes. Goodness. All the questions that kept coming into my mind:
1) Am I going to lose feeling in my feet?
2) Will I end up in a wheelchair?
3) Will I eventually not be able to walk?
4) Will this get worse?
5) Will I end up traveling to different doctors and hospitals around the country trying to get an answer? My doctors are part of the Cleveland Clinic so I hope not, but…
Truth is, nobody knows. I had to stop worrying about all the possibilities. The warning about Dr. Google was one that I did not heed.
I am appreciative of the feedback and support that I've received from everyone. I've been given some new things to try to deal with my worry. Thank you all!
