I have been a diabetic type 2 for 7 years, probably longer had the doctors tested me for it way back when. I am so disappointed in myself because I just can't seem to control my sugar urges. I would rather sit around and just munch on anything that has sugar or salt or both all day and not eat one healthy thing. My A1C this month was down 8.1 from 9.5 but I have no idea why. I love salads and fresh veggies but I just can't seem to stay away from the sugar. I've thought about hypnosis but on a fixed income their cost is out of the question. I don't know what to do. I watch my brother in law slowly kill himself for the same thing I'm doing, why didn't I learn my lesson from him? I have 3 beautiful grandchildren and a wonderful bunch of kids but still, I suffer. I also have bi-polar disorder with rapid cycling and major depressive disorder for which I take tons of meds for. Yelling at me doesn't help, it makes it worse. Is there someone out there that has these issues? I've been to nutritionists and classes, (heavy sigh) what do I do. FYI on the diabetes end, I am taking metformin 2X a day; Novolog flexpen 38 m 3 X day and humalog by syringe at 90 m every evening. Help!!!!!!!
