Well I'm a 22 year old diabetic and I've had diabetes since I was 11. I have try to appl for jobs but was never able to get one. I want to work and make my OWN money so bad but it's like no one is hiring because I'm type 1 (plus I have nueropaathy in my right foot). My question is "What jobs are available to me?" I'm a little frustrated with searching and never getting a call back after interviews. I'm kind of tired of depending on my folks for money, I wanna get out there on my own. I'm not that disabled!!
With well controlled diabetes there should not be any limitation to any kind of job except those that involve extreme stress. Neuropathy may hinder the activity level which may not be desired for certain types of jobs, otherwise I see no reason for a job denial.
Hope this is helpful.
