I have been very careful after watching what diabetes did to my father. When the phone rang today and my doctor's nurse told me that I have diabetes all I could think was I knew it. After taking care of him and my mother for the last 7 to 8 years of their lives I know what I have to watch for and what not to eat. What I still can not adjust to is the fact that even though I did everything to avoid becoming diabetic, I am. At least I have one thing on my side I never was a big sweet eater so I will not have that hurdle to get over and I also know how important it is to care of my feet and to eat right. Still have to say it is a whole different ball of wax when your the one who is diagonsed.
