So I have had diabetes for about 4-5 yrs now. I feel like my life is spiraling out of control. Every since I began the medication for the diabetes I have gained about 80 pounds. The treatment of this disease is so crazy to me. Everytime i walk into the doctor's they tell me to loose weight then they put me on medication that makes it almost impossible. I'm so frustrated at this point I just want to stop taking all of these meds and just throw in the towel. At least I would look good. Truthfully there are three reasons I have not done that and they are my kids. Before I was diagnosed with diabetes I feel that my life was so much better. Even though I was tired and sick all the time I still looked good. I know that sounds horrible but it's so true. I feel like my life is slipping away and I have no control over it. I went from pills to insulin in about 4 years. Life sticking yourself with needles doesn't seem worth while to me. However I know I did this to myself. The worst part is that my kids see the effects it has on me and have asked if they will grow up to be the same way becasue of me. OMG how that hurt to no end. Well needless to say I'm so depressed I feel like I'm at the end of my rope. The sad thing is I have no support what so ever. My husband refuses to change his diet cause my disease isn't is problem and that he can eat whatever he wants. What a winner right… And now that I'm so overweight he doesn't look at me the same. I am so ashamed.
