I haven't really been on this site as much as I should have. I am diabetic and I like reading the post. When first diagnosed. I cried in my doctors office. Screaming at him, how could this happen to me. I had always been physically active. I ate senseably. He kept saying it isn't your fault. I couldn't hear him and what he was trying to tell me. When I finally calmed downed, he told me it was hereditary. My dad died of diabetes complications in 1964. They did not have the technology we have today. Had he lived today, he would probably still be alive.
I have 3 siblings who also have the disease. I still watch what I eat, exercise, and take my meds as directed. However, I still sometimes become melancholy when I think of what I have. I try not to dwell on it, but it comes and goes. I went through 2 years of depression before finally getting a handle on it. So when I feel it coming, I have learned tactics to stear me away from it. I pray that one day God gives someone the knowledge of how to cure this disease. I have heard there is a cure, but there is to much money to be made off of this disease and others as well. I am not sure how true that is but it sure would be a shame. Also, heard you can stop being diabetic, by close monitoring. I watch and monitor my disease very well. If anyone out there knows of a way to rid onsself, please, please email and let me know.
