I'm trying to be more open to talking about my diabetes. I think it will help me gain more control, help me through my stress issues, and honestly I would like to make a friend or friends so I can have someone to talk to. I guess I have become more pulled back with everything that is going on. Anyway I am hoping this will help me. High hopes (fingers crossed)

Thank you! Last December I found out I have two bulging discs in my back and endometriosis and it has been nothing but stress. I had surgery for the endometriosis but haven't got anything done with my back. What bothers me the most is all the meds they have been putting me on and I guess because I don't have the enthusiasm they want to see they think I'm depressed so now they are all for bringing on the therapy. Like I said one big stress but all in all I think they are wrong about the depression.

Good luck. I've been diagnosed diabetic for just under a year. The first 3-4 months I didn't tell anyone except my husband and one girl I work with. I controlled everything really well and my A1C went from 10.7 to 6.6 in seven months. Then, my mother got sick and was put in the hospital the weekend after Christmas and passed away January 18th. My A1C in June was up to 7.7. It's terrible what stress does to us and I didn't work on my diet as well as I should have after her hospitilzation, so I'm trying to get back on track and get it back down, but it really is helpful to have support and someone to talk to. Best of luck to you.
