A while back I wrote a post on my dLife blog about a very scary situation that happened to a friend of mine from church.
He is a Type 2 that recently started taking insulin. Anyhow, he totaled his truck after passing out while driving due to an extreme low. Luckily he did not hurt himself and hit no one either.
Yesterday at church I asked him how things were going.
“I lost my license. I have to go to court but I can’t drive. There is a lot of crap going on right now.” He wanted to change the subject and I could not blame him. I could see he was getting upset.
My heart ached for him.
At first when I heard this I was so angry. Was it his fault? Did he ask for this? Who is to blame?
I would say Diabetes is to blame but does that mean he shouldn’t have a license?
He could have killed himself.
He could have killed someone.
He could have killed me.
I could have been behind that wheel.
I am not sure what to think. One side says he should not drive and the other says if he shouldn’t then anyone at risk of anything shouldn’t either.
Whatare your thoughts on this?
