It is hard to stay motivated when you feel like meds are dictating your life. I try to compare the amount of my day they take up with other basic activities of daily living. Do you spent more time brushing your teeth and hair, bathing, and dressing then dealing with you insulin and other meds? I have to put on thigh high compression stockings each day. I've timed how long it takes. Not very long 3-4 mins. per leg per day. Made me realize the benefits they provide all day outweigh the time spent every time a put them on or take them off.

We all feel that way at times. I stand in front of the medicine cabinet every morning taking 7 different medications, thinks why I should just quit. Then I think of the things that really matter to me, like my wife, kids and grandkids and you know it makes it all worth while. It's a pain in the butt. But I have to much to live for. So yea have your down days but keep in mind the thing that really matter and I know that you will be OK!!!

If you have been reading the discussions you will see you aren't alone! I too felt this way, in fact I feel this way every morning when I wake up. I don't like it, I hate it! I could just throw in the towel and say, have at me diabetes. I am a fighter though, I am going to beat this thing back and show it who is in control. I am going to dance at my kids weddings and walk my grandchildren in buggies one day. I KNOW you are a fighter as well. You came here and posted reaching out for support. That right there is showing that you are a fighter. Just a fighter that needed some validation on how hard it is. Well it is hard you are right but you can do it! You will do it.

I am new to diabetes. I have type 2, medicated. No insulin. I have those days too. Don't forget, if you want to quit, think of ways to "make the pain stop". A lot of times, I will work out harder, take a hard walk, or find a blog (like this one) to vent. you have every right to vent. I have loved sweets, ice cream, and carbs my whole life. Why me? Why now? I understand. There are too many people out there that should have it besides me. If you "fall off the wagon" do it once, get it over with, and climb back on. YOU ARE NOT A JUNKIE! YOU ARE A SURVIVOR
