Wow! Very glad to have read some of these posts. My A1c was 14 something when I was first diagnosed. I have managed to get it down to 8 but need to do better. I've basically been in denial for about a year. Glad to know there is a forum like this out there.

A good meal plan, count carbs and if take insulin, good carbs to insulin ratio. Test first thing in the morning before u eat, after u eat and before bed. Log all numbers and what u eat. Exercise. I switched to all whole grain foods. Nothing instant unless sf pudding. I eat rams w cinnamon instead of potatoes. Eat on a consistent basis. Try not to skip meals. Good luck. I went from 11.7 in April 2013 (1st diagnosed) to 5.9 at the beginning of December. What made it a little easier was my job is very physically active so i never have to think about an exercise plan.

Again, good luck. Let me know how it goes
