I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes on May the 13th 2011. It's almost been one year. Last year this time I was on several different medicines and I had many different health issues. I still have Diabetes and I still have some health issues but I have come a very long way since last year. I have turned my life around in more ways then one. I am now able to manage my Diabetes properly with diet and exercise and I have learned to manage pain so that I don't have to take so many pain medicines. Last year this time I was taking an abundance of medicines. I weaned myself off of the medicines that I absolutely didn't actually need. I was worried about ruining my liver. I changed my diet. I started exercising by doing small simple things like walking, stretching. I also got my first job after being a stay-at-home Mom for 35 years and raising 4 children. I feel so much better since last year & I'm living proof that you can turn your life around if you set your mind to do so. I was so tired of being down, I had to take charge and do something about it or I was going to die. I made a decision that I was going to Do everything that I could do to be healthy and live.
