Like "The way I see it, I'm probably lucky to have diabetes keeping me company. Thanks to diabetes, I eat much better, I exercise more often, I've eliminated some other developing and potentially devastating conditions. I believe this is what it took for me to see the light. Diabetes gives me a wack upside the head if I don't take care of myself properly. I'll probably live a longer and healthier life with it than without it. It's all a matter of how you choose to view things ! A saying that I think is powerful and appropriate at this time. I was miserable because I didn't own a pair of shoes until I saw the guy who didn't have any feet. So my friend, have your cry, take a little sympathy if you need it, and pick yourself up by the bootstraps and enjoy your life while the opportunity is here. Trust me, it's much more fun this way. "
