After over 45 years, of wht I call our family curse, I can finally say that I have more control over the disease. I have retired and can focus on me now…I am like so many Mom's out there I was so busy I could not recognize my own needs, or symptoms, it didn't matter how I felt…the kids had to be fed, there were football, and baseball and track practices etc…things had to go on…so I pushed thru…my George foreman grill has been my life saver, I grill everything, veggies etc, I even make eggplant parmisian with it…There is something about those grill marks that make it taste better. Attitude is everything…depression only makes it worse, you move slower, and don't burn those calories…take a look at yourself…you are important…like who you are…which includes your sugar problem. Don't let yourself have a pityparty when you can't eat what your friends do…your life is all you have you can't live theirs nor would you really want to…your family is the most precious gift, and your gift to them is being there for their special events and having your own memories and active lifestyle.
