i was diagnosed typeII nov 07, i immediately came home gave away 9 mt.dews to a neighbor kid, stayed in bed all the next day depressed then met my bro, his wife and youngest child with my parents at cracker barrel. my brother told me what i could order as he was diagnosed a few yrs earlier. (he's 9 yrs older than me. you see i was very active growing up but had a back injury in 1998?from a fall. i have a numb rt leg since 1990 and was still active until the fall. mind you i'm tough ,never missed a day of work but my life was very limited and i took not one pain pill and made it through with a wonderful chiropractor.2bulging discs degeneration and artritis in my back now with a vertebrae tilted 7mm. i can deal with physical pain for the most part its the emotions that are getting the best of me, the holiday blues, no money to buy what i want for others and in debt up to %$^$i sure wish santa would drop about $10,000 my way then i'd get out of debt, buy the gifts, help the needy and join a gym. It always seems to happen to others..i just struggle alone to make ends meet.i went to college for this, helping others at a non-profit agency?i love what i do now but when will i be happy and when will my non-diabetics quit nagging me about my weight gain and eating recently. im like a child i don't like to be told no when it comes to food.or should you eat that?argh..i need some help and support right now.
