I'm a new member of diabetic connect. I signed up so that I could ask for suggestions about how to motivate myself to have a healthy lifestyle. I kept my type 2 diabetes in good control for about 5 years, by watching my diet and exercising. When my father passed away 1-1/2 years ago, I got depressed and starting eating whatever I want and stopped exercising (it was always hard to get myself to exercise anyway). I don't know how my daily blood sugars are because I'm always afraid to check now. My A1C has gone up some, and I'm sure it will be worse next time. I do visit my diabetes doctor every 3 months. I'm seeing a psychologist but I have barely improved my diet and exercise. Has this happened to anyone else? Any suggestions on how to get back on track?
