I am type 2 and have been for about 18 years now. I weigh 210 lbs. I'm 4'10". I HATE being diabetic. I HATE the food restrictions. I don't have time or the inclination to exercise. I just want to lay down and cry. My husband accuses me of being self destructive. I go to the grocery store and look at the "healthy choices" but with a family of 3 to feed - and only $40 a week for groceries - it's impossible to buy "healthy". My Dr would like me to go to diabetic class. I can't afford it or a dietitian. I just feel like giving up.
