Went swimming yesterday and as I kicked I realized that I couldn't feel the lower part of either leg. I've had diabetes for 37 years and have always been in relatively good control. In the last month my blood sugar has been the best it's ever been in my life. With early stage Diabetic Retinopathy and now potentially neuropathy which is inspiring the beginning of shooting pains in my calves, I am getting truly pissed for the first time in my life about having Diabetes. I am very overweight (a relatively recent development and out of shape. I have three boys and I want to be here to see then grow up and not be in a wheel chair-something I never seriously considered until recently. Not sure what to do, but I feel like I am at a crossroads in my life. I feel like I have to make a lifestyle change and eat much healthier and get in shape or I am going to face a slow and painful death. Not really that into the latter, so I guess I'm on here to ask for methods of making dramatic lifestyle changes. How do I get there and make a frantic impact on my overall health?
