MY name is Brenda I am a 43yr old nurse. I have had diabetes for approximately five years and I have not taken good care of myself. I have no problem taking care of other people but when it comes to myself its like pulling teeth. I also have bi-polar disorder so its a battle most days. I dont stick to my diet I love Mt. Dew and some days I dont even remember to take my meds. Im am always finding new diets and spreadsheets to help keep track of everything and I always have good intentions but never use them. I stop taking my glucophage because it gave me severe diarrhea Does anybody know what to do for this problem? I am just wondering if anybody else has or have had these problems and could give some ideas on how to overcome them. Any advice would be appreciated.
