Thank you for taking the time to post survivor7311. It is nice to hear from someone with a upbeat and positive attitude in the face of adversity. " the difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is in how you use them" I am a firm believer in turning a negative into a positive. I have been dealing with my diabetes now for 12 years. As a result of the life style changes I have made I am healthier now then I would be if I didn't have D. Much luck and good fortune on your journey through life

Oh my, but that's the thing that gets me through too…I let go and let God. All the well knowing that God expects me to help myself as well though. :)

Can I just start by saying…wow! Guess I haven't really been up on my diabetic news like I can be because I never knew there was a type 5. You are now added to my inspiration list of people/things to keep me on the right track.

I will admit…I gave up one time. Competely with everything. Then I had a moment where things just didn't feel right or normal, so I checked myself. Was almost upwards of 300…something like that anyways. Needless to say, got my stuff together real quick.

Recently had a scare of almost losing my husbands health insurance, but that got worked out. Then today I had an all time low of 55. That one had me scared big time. But it's situations like this that while making me feel vulnerable, helps me to become stronger and a better diabetic.

Like you say, this IS a battle to be won. And it can be. I'm a fighter. I hope and pray you all are too. Okay, so maybe we may not beat this thing totally but we sure can give a heck of a fight.
