…succumb to the frustration of the rollercoaster sugars I've been experiencing the past couple of weeks. I will try to eliminate the stress that is causing the problem.

You know what to do with stress, show it the door!
Seriously, I can understand how you feel, the ups and downs of diabetic rollercoasters can be very damaging, besides rolercoasters are suppose to be fun, at least at the amusement park anyway, so do what you must do and enjoy yourself, summer is coming!

I am literally counting down 'til spring! I love kayaking and cold weather inhibits that. You're probably right; I have the wintertime blues! …I seriously didn't think of that…

I will not…let what other say about my diabetes ruin my life and how I see myself!

MAYS 2013-02-18 11:26:38 -0600 Report

Continue to see yourself for who you are, diabetes and you are a team, as long as that team understands the objective and works together towards achieving it everything will work out just fine, besides the words of others are just that, words!

I will not . . .

…let diabetes become the main focus of my existence to the point I lose myself, my friends and the ability to help others. I WILL control my diabetes and never let it control me.

MAYS 2013-02-18 11:22:58 -0600 Report

Joyce, your focus is on helping others to better themselves and their lives, and i am sure that they appreciate it very much, but don't ever lose sight of who you are or minimize what it is that you do, be good to yourself so that you can continue to help others in the future…Hugs!

....Feel sorry for myself when I fail and I will not gloat when I succeed. I WILL do the best I can do to be in control of what life has blessed me with, good or bad.

We are judged and remembered according to our character, good or bad, and your comment explodes with self confidence and diabetes doesn't stand a chance against that!

Sometime I feel like it is hopeless for me to follow the strict regimine with very little support at my. My wife always buys the wrong things, and I am a compulsive personality.

Diabetes has been put on the back burner for me, having survived Breast Cancer and a double (bi-lateral) mastectomy I am going through the reconstruction process right now. Had to have one of my expanders removed right after my mastectomy because i did not heal well I had them put back in in Nov. so now I am near the end will have my implants put in soon and maybe one more surgery and I will be done.

I will not eat sugar and grains just because I need some food. (Fruit, where are you!)

MAYS 2013-02-12 21:48:06 -0600 Report

Once you find the right mixture and combination of foods that suits you fine and manages your diabetes make sure that you let us know we will be looking forward to hearing from you…hugs!

Jim, if i am ever at a lost for words, you will be the first person that i call upon to complete my sentence for me, or you can whisper them in my ear and i will say them out of my mouth so if anything you will be accused of putting them (the words) in my ear!

I will not let diabetes rob me any more than it already has. I spent years poor poor me. Oh wo is me I am a diabetic. I should sit here and just … well … I just cant do anything… oh me… ENOUGH ! I want my life back. In fact , just to put you on notice I am taking my life back.

MAYS 2013-02-12 08:48:50 -0600 Report

There is no reason for you to eat out, the meals that you prepare are much healthier and better tasting than theirs, if anything they should be "eating in" with you!

MewElla 2013-02-12 08:03:07 -0600 Report

I will not miss one day in fighting my diabetes, both in eating right and exercise!

I see your diabetes retreating in fear, your desire to fight by eating right and exercising has made you a winner in this fight against diabetes…fight on!

I will not eat grains, breads, potatoes, or sugar. I will eat protein, veggies, and fat.

No need to eat them if you don't need them!
How about sharing a few recipes, pointers and advice with the rest of us?
