I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who have been posting your thoughts and struggles on this forum. I was diagnosed with Type 2 on January 14th of this year. My A1C was 10.8. The scary thing is that I had no idea that I had diabetes…I thought I had been struggling with the flu, etc.
I just had my three month check-up and my A1C has dropped to 6.9 and I know that a huge part of it was all of the advice and knowledge I reamed from this forum.
It has been a tough three months…I went from anger at myself to a pity party of "why me" to finally accepting that I was the only person who could take control of this and win…I am just that stubborn. Finding Diabetic Connect helped to save my life as did all of you!
Changing my diet and of course, medication all helped in turning my health around. I know I will always be a diabetic…I have finally accepted this but there is also no reason why I can't live a healthy and happy life doing all of the things that I love to do.
So from me to you…thank you so much! Keep fighting the fight.
