I am a 46 year mother of one teen daughter(drives my insane)and the pet own of 4 dogs,4 rabbits and 5 guinea pigs.I feel like I am at a AA meeting.So I will start talking.For some reason or other, I never wanted to accept the fact I hae type 2. I refuse help from my doctor and I have been like a moron. Like everything else in my life, I should treated as a gift to get me to lose the weight and stop being so stress out about everything in my life. I have cut down on my foods and snacks(except during that time I really hate being a female once a month). I finally got those tennis shoes that have the ball on the bottom. It does make a big difference. I really do not like to talk about my type 2 and I do not like it went my daughter opens her mouth in front of other people. I feel it is my problem not everybody elses.Every time I put myself on a schedule something seems to come up to take me off the schedule. No matter what I do, I can never get my blood sugar down. I work the overnight shift. It is not a good shift to work,cause the body is going against the force of time. I was thinking of doing the nutiskim program, I heard it is a lot of money(Something I do not have much of). I am think of doing the slim fast shakes during my morning snack time. On the days I do not walk the dogs. I will do one of the Tony Littles tapes. I really do not have any to talk with about this project. I would like feedback and motivation and emotion help. I can talk with my dogs but they can only do so much. I am asking for alot help. If you would like to reach my at my email address for the motivation and emotion help.My address is small. Thank you for your tme and help.Dale.

I am here when you need to talk. You can do this, you just have to work at it. Try different things to find out what works for you. Stay positive.

I do understand you but see when I frist found out I went thought a deniel and then when I hered about this web site it has help me out and you are able to talk to people freely and they are willing to help you , but most of all that you have to come to turm with it as being a T2 and show that you can get it under contorl. I know it is hard but it will all turn out at the end I have been there and I am still working on it. I am on Insulin and with the right Carb counting it dose work. So I would talk to your Dr and see what he can do for you. but most of all don't get down so hard on your doughter she is trying to help you. and who knows you might find someone that is out there and realy can help. and make you feel better.
I do whish you all the best. and if you need someone to talk to we are here just ask.
