Like "We try because we don't want to face complications. I'm not sure if we all end up on meds though. I know some people are started on meds and then go off for a while like my uncle-in-law who started meds then got off them and gave up on life and went back on again. I hope to be able to go off my meds in the near future if I can control my diabetes without it but if not then it's just not how mine works. Either way I'm going to eat right and exercise so I can live longer without seeing complications. Even if we are all "doomed" to take meds one day I don't see it as a reason to give up the fight, who knows we may see a cure for this and if that happens I don't want to still have the pain of complications after being cured."
