Ok, I've just about had it! I diagnosed over 12yrs ago…and I've gone from shots to pills. I've lost over 80lbs in the process. But there are days I just pray to God for help. I try to keep my blood sugars low but it seems that I can't. Some days are better than others-my family are good supporters but then there are days…that I just don't whats going on…Thanks for listerning.

Congrats on losing 80lbs. That is one big step to being good to yourself. 15 yrs and type 2 for me. Yes it does suck and you have every right to say so. Diabetes is not fun at all. You can keep your levels but sometimes our bodies are not listening. And as my doctor told me, sometimes meds don't work and you have to change them or add. This sucks too. But at least we have doctors with drugs for diabetes and people who listen.

As you read through the site/discussions, you will find that your feelings are not at all uncommon. You definitely are not the only one who deals with these feelings on a regular basis. Diabetes and the things we have to do to control it and take care of ourselves just stinks. No two ways around it. HOWEVER, as I keep reminding folks on here, consider other illnesses and afflictions that you could be dealing with, some of which are incurable, and most of which are more painful and/or debilitating. At least we do have some control over our disease. It's up to us to either do the things we need to do or not. But the other thing I constantly think about and remind people of are the horrendous consequences from not doing all we can to control it and take good care of ourselves. It's okay to get sick of the whole mess from time to time, but don't let it go on long. Get back on the bandwagon with new determination ASAP. Try not to consentrate so much on what you have to do, but try to just accept it and make it a routine thing. Focus on your life and your family and friends. Get involved in volunteer work. Start a new hobby. Don't let your condition rule your entire life. You're already doing the most important thing - praying. Whatever you do, keep that up.
Good luck and God bless!

When you think about it, isn't that just the way life is ?

At least as a diabetic we have something to pinpoint and focus our depression and frustration on, while others search blindly to find something to associate theirs with.

Those moments come and go, you just have to find a way to deal with them, control them in your own way, don't let it control you (you can do it) !
