One year ago today I was very sick. I had a really bad cold that I couldn't get rid of and it just got worse. So I went to the doctor and was told my cold was bad because of my diabetes. I almost fell off the table. No one in my family has diabetes and I was shocked. I also had bronchitis and was in the early stages of pneumonia. My blood sugar was 246, my A1C was high and I was over weight. Well it has been a year. A year of cussing and fussing. A year of change in eating habits, a number of doctor visits, incorporating exercise and new expenses into not just my life but my family's life as well. We all had to make adjustments. Today at my doctors appointment I was told that I no longer have to test my blood sugar. My numbers are excellent. I lost 20 pounds. I have reversed my type 2 diabetes. I started with using insulin and when I ran out, I controlled it with diet. It has been a difficult year. It was hard but I did it. I did not always have the best attitude. Even though I cussed and fussed and cried, I did what I had to do and it paid off. This site was a huge help to me. I read a lot of stories and had a lot of support. Thank you all for sharing.
