I was diagnosed with Type 2 eight years ago and started on insulin/med combo in 2006. After all this time I still do not have this under control. When I remember to take my shots before meals, it usually stays around 120 and I feel good. The problem is every day I forget and my sugar climbs to between 450 and 600 nearly every night. I know that this is completely my fault and I don't know why I can't get it together and just do what the doctor tells me.
I've gained 30 pounds in the last year and cannot get it off (I've lost 12 pounds in the last two months but I can't really tell). I also struggle with giving up sugary sodas. I can eat sugar free foods all day long but I can't stand diet soda. It's almost an addiction and it's my #1 problem. I'm so tired all the time from my sugar being too high that I don't exercise except short walks with my dogs. I cannot find the motivation although after 8 years finally joining some sort of diabetic support group is hopefully the first step :) Thanks for taking the time to read this… Tammy :)
