I need to rant today and I know y'all will understand, because you have all been there at some point. I don't know how much more I can take. Back in Aug., I woke up in the hospital minus a foot of my colon and a colostomy. I can deal with that. Then they told me I had diabetes. Not much instruction or info while I was there, but I got on board, stopped eating the bad stuff(mostly) got my a1c down, my cholestrol inline, my blood pressure inline, my thyroid inline. I take all the pills they give me. I put up with losing half my hair. I eat the restricted diet. Now I have to look at complications from kidney function. After that, what else? Just one after the other after the other? I don't want to do this anymore. More restrictions on what I can and cannot eat…I might as well just pack it in now because it won't be living and I don't just want to exist. I guess y'all can tell I'm having a really bad day. It is probably the diabetes talking and tomorrow will be better. It makes me want to go have some bread or a cupcake or candybar just out of spite, Please tell me it's not really so bad as it seems right now.
