Re: [Nightingale] Diabetic skydiver - should I?

But the main problem is that I live in central Europe (in a very intolerant country) and it is pretty difficult (imposible) to get a Medical Certificate Class 3 for diabetic, you have to be very very healthy to get this certificate for e.g. when you carry a glasses about 1 dpi? you won't get it, so people not always tell the true.
I have already did my first bungee jump and my sugar went from 140 mg/dL up to 180 mg/dL - after jump because of adrenaline - it is not so bad, so I suppose that skydiving make my sugar level very simillar.
I'm not interested in AFF course I would be very happy to jump on static line, but now I'm totally depressed because of my disease and very bad law (they allow me to drive a car fill with people but I can't skydive and be responsible for my self - isn't stupid?
