I guess because I am feeling really down today; That is why I thought of this. For whatever reason we come across days when we just feel like giving up; We ask "Why Me" or "Do I have to deal with this forever" or "What Next" and a whole lot of other questions and for that, we all need encouragement.It's not just about what you are feeling today, but you look down the road, and feel overwhelmed, or you are facing more health issues, or even (as they say) falling off the wagon, with your diet, medication, excercise, doctor visits. There are so many, many reasons why we all came together in this community, and one of them is to look for a safe place to go when you need help, encouragement, understanding and love. We all need it; We all crave it; Some more times than others', some less; but we all need encouragement. So, If you feel like giving up; come here, talk to someone, privately or in a discussion, I guess like I am doing today, because we all need encouragement to survive. Anyway; that is how I feel today. How bout you?

I feel a little better today, because things seem to be coming together again. Looking better for the future. And most important is that my husband is becoming more aware of his BS and the numbers are dropping slowly and at a much better level, starting to stay at.
I am proud of him, it is hard work for anyone; he is working hard to keep it down, now that he sees a more consistent progress.

Family can make a big difference. We try hard to be supportive without taking over for my son. Lately he likes to remind me, "It''s my disease, not yours."

Anyway, I'm glad you're feeling better. I hope tomorrow is another good day for you.

My comfort in coming to this site, is that I have found people who have the same problems as me and how they are coping. We do not all have the same numbers nor are we all the same size or take the same meds but we all have one thing that links us together. Diabetes.
