I am having a hard time with motivation for some reason. I know the things I should be doing like watching my diet and excersizing taking meds. I do alright on the meds, check my bg when I can afford it, but the diet and exceersizing is just somthing I can't get motivated about. I start out watching my diet but then it just becomes too much of a hassle, and the excersize part weel…forget it. I have an excellent place to walk but just don't do it. What few times I have cause me too hurt so bad I didn't want to do it again…What do you do to help stay motivated…any answer would be appreciated…

I'm right there with you Harlen. I lost my mom this last September. She already had arterial surgeries on both legs then lost her big toe. I also live down the hall from a man not much older than I am who is in a wheelchair and missing a foot from diabetes 2. I have enough problems with fibromyalgia to compound the problem. Besides, I still have a lot I haven't done yet!
