I've been diabetic since the birth of my son (9 years ago). It was uncontrolled up until last year when I decided to take my health seriously. I went from a 11 A1c to a 5.5 A1c in 4 months. I was doing great and feeling great. This past July my health took a bad turn. I suddenly felt sick and landed in the hospital after 3 weeks of not being able to walk due to edema all over my body and pain in all my bones. I was being treated for lymes disease and constantly told I was "alright". I kept getting worse and long story short it turns out I was diagnosed with Lefgroms syndrome which is a type of sarcoidosis. Since then I've been taking prednisone and methotrexate. I have blown up and since gained 30 plus pounds. Of course my diabetes is out of control. I don't know what my a1c is at the moment but I know I don't feel great. These extra pounds are very inconvenient. Now I know what I should be doing but it's so hard mentally to take that big step. My self esteem and motivation is on an all time low. At this point I would love some motivational advice. Please help thank you.
