@furrypaul – that’s a very good question and something I’ve often thought about. Does one just get used to feeling “diabetic”? I was only diagnosed 5-and-a-bit years ago, so I had quite a lot of adult life without diabetes (though actually, looking back – I think I had it ‘mildly’ for years) so I think I can compare and contrast pre and post diagnosis moderately well.

Certainly I’ve got used to feeling high or recovering from lows in that it doesn’t really phase me any more; but I still feel “ill” if my BG is high for a long period of time (say I’m ill) or I have a horrible hypo. So – no – I don’t think I’ve become accustomed – I wonder what everyone else thinks?
