We cant give up on anything in this life. Its already so short as it is, and you take whatever comes at you in life deal with it and move on. We all have those days where we want to just throw in the towel, but we cant. Live life to it's fullest no matter what.

Julie, Never give up. Do the best you can with each day.
Its all any of us can do. We care about each other and
share what is happening in our lives. Our DC family is
a blessing.

I agree with everyone else who has said "never give up, give thanks". I like to say "if I wake, anything and everything is secondary after that". It appears that you have your hat on tight and know who's in control.

There is no need for thanks to be given (in my opinion),
to anyone except God, and yourself for being aware and wanting to take control of diabetes and your situation.

If you can help someone else, don't hesitate to do so.
Take care of yourself, manage your diabetes and most importantly don't ever stop living, enjoy your life, it's a gift.

I agree with MAYS, Julie! Don't ever give up…I'm glad that you were able to get some of the help that you were needing…Thanks to the friend who helped you find the doctor who is helping you… Hugs, Sue
