Like "I have to agree. Our ailement is physical, but our brains can control so much more than we think it can. A great attitude will help no matter what you face. My mom, 74 is type 2. She has been for several years now. Just in the last few months, her levels have improved so much, she is going to ask her doctor to remove one of her meds at her next visit. How you ask? She has joined me in most of my lifestyle change, she is eating better. She has support and is excited about her management again. She is getting 80's now where she used to have 130's. There is hope. Keep doing everything you know to do. There are no guarantees, but if you do all you can, at least you will have no regrets."
