I have a friend who since being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes has had a terrible time with neuropathy. It meant that he had to take almost 2 years off from work. To wear clothing / to have anything touch him meant sheer pain for him. He's doing better - with meds - and he's now on insulin sad to say - but I was wondering how any of you out there in cyberland handle neuropathy.

As of yet - it hasn't affected me - I do get tingling from time to time in the lower legs (like spiders or ants crawling on my legs - figured it was due to not shaving my legs <lol>) - but seriously - that is supposably a sign of neuropathy.
