Today, since I needed someone to talk to about it, I told my girlfriend how my dad was recently diagnosed with diabetes. My girlfriend's mother then told me, in graphic detail, how her father's diabetes led to his toes being hacked off. FML

  • Honestly, diabetes can be frightful if people don't take proper care of themselves. Without the adequate medication, food restrictions or exercise it can turn into something more serious (such as missing toes). Maybe she was just stressing how important it is for your dad to adjust his current lifestyle...

  • I'm sure everyone's situation with diabetes is different, OP. That case seems extreme, and although she was maybe trying to help she just made it worse for you. Sorry for the bad news.
