Hi and welcome to the board!!! I would think that a lot of us understand what "hard to deal with it still" means and that's true for those just diagnosed recently (like I) or a few years ago (like you). Many of us know what "trying to lose weight as well means" means because some of us are, were, and will be successful (or not). Kiddo, we are in it together and we're in it to win it! There will be ups and downs in all areas of your life … sugar, weight, emotions, and so much more. Feel free to chat or message me anytime. Whether you want to boast or cry or laugh or just need a shoulder, count me in! This is a roller coaster but we're in the same seat. Hang on tight!!!

Welcome to Diabetic Connect and Happy Mothers Day !

Always remember that it's only hard when it's new to you and you seek to understand it, once you become familiar with it (diabetes), and practice the proper methods to manage it, it will become second nature.
No miracles, just practiced factual success.
Take your time, you can do it, just a little at a time is all that is required, you're in great hands here !

I am new to this site too, one week tomorrow!! Been a diabetic since 2002. I take pills for mine . Still having trouble with my weight. This is a good site, people are very supportive. We just can't give up. Tomorrow I am starting another try at changing how I eat. So keep on trying.

Welcome to DC, I have type 2 and have been a diabetic since 2009. Like you i am on insulin and pills. I find it hard a times to deal with being a diabetic but with the support of my friends on this site it is not so hard. Stay encourage.
