Share - which illness led up to you needing a transplant?
I had a bad car wreck at the age of 18 which damaged my pancreas. I became a severe diabetic in which I was in and out of the hospital for almost 10 years. I had lost the sensation of hypoglycemia. I couldn't drive, sleep alone, etc. After almost dying many times, I had to seek treatment. I was told by endocrinologist that I was the worst they had every seen.
