No, but we get a lot of complications because of diabetes.

I was told the scoliosis won't get worse. My spine is done growing, so it's done getting worse, lol.

I've talked to people who've had diabetes for 40-ish years and have had very very minimal complications because of it.

You aren't the only one. I have a very compromised immune system (low something in my blood count that has to do with immune stuff...I can't remember what exactly the name of it is) so I get sick about once every other month or every third month when I'm around different people daily. AKA, college will be hell for me. There's nothing they can do to fix it. On top of that, I've had asthma forever, so when I do get sick, it's always worse because of that. So..eh...I know how not fun health stuff is.

I used to have asthma really bad, I've somewhat outgrown it. I do also have a low immune system, my lungs are very susceptible to infection because of a birth defect. Apparently I was born with fluid in my lungs, I'm sure there's a technical term for it, but I'm unaware of that.

I'm not as bad as you two though it doesn't sound like, I'm slowly starting to outgrow things.

My asthma has gotten LEAPS and BOUNDS better since I was little. I was in the hospital a lot when I was a kid for it. However, my immune deficiency is something that cannot be out grown or treated since it deals with my blood. So at the first signs of getting sick, I have to make sure I get an antibiotic so I don't stay sick for 2+ weeks.

My asthma used to be horrid like yours it sounds like, I've made numerous trips to the ER unconscious as a little tyke, glad that doesn't happen anymore.

I seem to get sick at the exact time every year, fall. Ever since I could remember, it never fails. Some form of bronchitis hits me hard every fall and I usually miss a week of school because of it. Last year I was lucky enough to have mono, boy was that a treat..

Scoliosis isn't that bad man. I have it. I have some lower back pain almost daily, but I don't know if it's because of that. I checked it out at the doc and she said it was because I'm still growing (I'm 17 and I don't see to be getting much taller). I've had some moles removed, not that big of a deal really. You need to look at life through positive lenses. Make the best of what you got man. For medical issues like this, do what you have to do to prevent any more development. Don't waste your time resenting it because it's not going away.

**Sorry if I sounded harsh, but, again, look out for the positive things. How's Michigan Tech?

I know what you mean. Those two things aren't that bad... Diabetes is the 5th deadliest disease in America though, so that's a bit of a downer.

One thing I have found that strengthens my immune system a LOT is Glutamine. Taken for weight lifting, but it really does strengthen your immune system. It's in spinach and the supplements aisle at walmart right next to the whey protein. Worth a shot.
