I was doing good since I found out I had diabetes since March of this yr. but when I went to the doctors office 3 weeks ago everything went back up. The Dr asked me something is going on for everything to go up. I explained to her I'm going through a lot of stress. I was told I need to get back on track cause if I don't take care of myself who will take care of my 3 boys. So sine she told me that 3 weeks ago I have been walking everyday except Fridays for one hour in the mall with my boys and I have seen lost Mose inches of my thighs and hips I'm doing so good I need not to let anybody get in my way. Its hard to keep on tracks cause I have nobody to make sure I stay on tracks. That's a lie the kids are used to going because when I get home they are dressed to go for our walk.

i am glad that you are walking for so long. i have copd so excersing like that hurts me more than helps me. i try to do some basic excerise at home and i will walk around in walmart or another store just to get some excerise time in. stress plays a big part in my copd excabating which then up my sugar because i have to take so much steriods.

I don't talk much to my family either, they don't seem to be very supportive in anything I do either. My daughter keeps up with me by asking me everyday when I come home from work about my day and all. I have a job that is in a major department store so it seems I walk about a mile a day maybe, I should buy a steping counter or something… I can be a friend to talk to if you need anyone. I could use a friend to talk to here too since Im new and all.

Did your Doctor offer help for your stress? My Doctor knowing that I have many pain and. stressful issues going on always makes a point of asking my stress level along with my pain levels. Both can derail any program you set up to fight you diabetes.

Yes she asked me if I need to talk to someone, but the way I am I never talk to anybody about my problems I'm going through I keep everything in and my family said that is no good

It's never good to keep stuff in but I understand your reluctance to disclosing your innermost feelings to a total stranger. I've been seeing a therapist for an unrelated issue and it was difficult to open up to him at first. But he's been very patient with me and the sessions have done wonders for me. I never thought I'd ever need to talk to anyone besides my husband and friends about my problems. One of the things I've discovered is that I didn't have anyone to go to when THEY were my problem. And as Tom said, unlike with others, what you say in that room, stays in that room. It's very freeing. Be blessed.

I agree, you should not keep everything all in for many reasons, not only will it wreck your health, but when you finally reach the breaking point you may come down on the wrong person,or persons. Some times it is unbelievable how easy it is to talk to a counselor or a stranger knowing that is as far as your thoughts will go. I never believed in taking any more drugs than necessary, but my outlook is much better after my Doctor put me on something for stress. Think about finding something or someone to help you start the New Year!!
