How do I even start? Right now I am pretty much on an emotional roller coaster and wishing it would stop. I have become complacent about my diabetes which I should never have done as now I can't seem to find the motivation I need to get myself back on track. I can beat myself up but then I am still where I don't want to be. Help! I am really trying to watch what I eat but my wants are outweighing my good intentions of not eating. Help! I know that I need people around me to help me be accountable but I don't have many close friends and they are not diabetics. I have Mom but she tends to get on the side of fussing more at me than helping me. I know her intentions are only for good but sometimes the fussing is coming at the wrong time and with me usually fussing only makes me worse. Mom is not a diabetic and is not a bit overweight. She has a very high metabolism and can run circles around me. Mom is 77 yrs young and has the liver of a 16 yrs old. Look at me going on and on. I apologize for grumbling when I can and will have to be the one to take care of myself. Thanks for this site where one can spout off when the need rises at least I hope it is okay to spout off. I will shut up now.
