Hello everyone. I was diagnosed on October 11 2010 with type 2 diabetes. It was kinda my fault. Prior to this date my doctor said that i was borderline diabetic and that i had to watch what i was doing. And not listening to him i ended up on the wrong side of that line. Since then i've been eating better, excercising and watching what i eat. I usually try to go for a walk 6 days a week for about 30 mins. I know that i have lost weight due to the fact that my clothes are falling off of me. So i think i'm doing pretty good. There are some days where i just don't feel like getting out of bed. I would like to hear what everyone else does to make it through each day. So far just worrying about one thing at a time is helping me. I take metformin twice a day and check my blood sugar once a week. Everything else in between i take it as it comes. Its hard for me because i'm 21 and no one in my family has it. But i'm trying my hardest to make this situation a reason to better my life. I say to myself everyday before i get out of bed in the morning "You will do at least one thing today that will give your diabetes a kick in the butt! And that will put a smile on your face" Any sayings you guys have for yourself?
