    “Johnson had reportedly suffered from diabetes since childhood.”

    Hrrrrmmmmppph!

    I’ve been diabetic for 30 years (since I was 4).

    I’d hardly living with this condition as ‘suffering’.

    Then again I’m not a drug addict.

  2. Simon, that’s a bit harsh. ‘Suffered’ is the word usually used for medical conditions, and there’s a lot of ignorance in the media in general about diabetes. I just think it’s sad that someone with access to the best healthcare died from a preventable condition. I did think her death might be related to her diabetes, but, because of her reported drinking, assumed she could have had a severe hypo.

    She seems to have had a number of problems – maybe they were of her own making, we don’t know – but it’s rumoured that family difficulties caused her a lot of stress. She might have put on a happy face, but she never looked completely happy and relaxed to me.

  3. I know I found this link way late but learned my lesson 3/23/10 and almost died the same exact way only there are more factors to get that bad like drinking with your meds also.
