When did you first suspect it was diabetes?

When did you first suspect you may have diabetes? Did you go to the doctor right away or wait to see if your symptoms would go away on their own?

I didn't! But I felt so awful that it was a relief to know what was wrong. I didn't really have any of the classic signs--eating too much, drinking too much and peeing too much. I would eat something and I would have to go an lay down because I was so sleepy. And I got fierce headaches and awful bouts of respiratory infections. At the time I was diagnosed we didn't know about the heritary component of diabetes. Now we would be checking me more frequently because I am a third generation diabetic.

I don't think most people think about it. My diabetes was caught early and  was never out of control, so I didn't have any symptons to suspect.
