It has been almost 3 months for me being diabetic. I was warned, but my insulin has me to take meds and do my readings in the morning. I am thankful the insulin shots are not in place. I am not crazy about needles. Walking I try to do more of, even though I have a sit down job as a receptionist. The phone keeps me most busy. Btw, I am really reading labels more and more. Sugar is just about in everything we eat. I hope you all have good days and better ones to come. This adjustment has been strange from Christmas 08 forward. Glad you all are behind me and all that need you here, keep doing what your doing, its working, Thank You! God Bless Everyone

Seems like only yesterday since I first found out instead of 4 years ago soon to be 5. Good to find a site such as this. Many times have got more answers from people such as on this site than from many of the health care people. Seems like I learn something new weekly. Hope things go well and dont get discouraged. When you do, dont hold it in, talk to someone. God bless and tak care.

hiya, I am glad things seem to be working out. It is quite a transition I do know. And I was so worried about the needles myself but they're not so bad I don't think now…then again I am use to the damn things. lol Keep up the good work, we're all here for you when you need us. :) Sheila

It sounds like you're doing good Susan. It's been 3 months for me today and wow what a whirl. I hated needles too, but got used to it pretty fast. I know I have to take the shots, so you just do it. I have got to add some exercise and I don't cook and don't understand all this carb stuff. I guess it just takes time, but I am much better today than 3 months ago. Hope you continue to do well. Best of luck, Angie

Hello,
I pray that the transition goes smoothly for you. When I was first diagnosed I was so afraid and I didn't know anything about diabetis except that I shouldn't eat sugar. We all know that there is sooo much more to it than that. The only advice that I can give, is to stay optimistic. Look at it like a new lifestyle and adventure! Research, talk with people, medical staff and learn… keep track of your sugars in a log. See how different foods affect your blood sugar. (BS) Remember, getting on track just may help you in various ways, weight, health, and
stamina.

Your in the right place to ask questions! the people at this site are awesome! Remember, no question is not worthy of asking. Even if, it has been on this site before, everyone is different and feel free to ask!

Your Friend, Leigh
