Like "I was diagnosed with type 2 in 1994 and have maintained it on oral medications only and am taking less than I was taking. Its not "curable" but it is manageable. I went back to school and learned as much as I could about it and experimented until I now know what works for me. I have a great doctor who supported me, kicked my butt when necessary and I only see him every 4 months as part of my maintenance. Am I perfect? No. I try to take each day one at a time and realize that I will make mistakes. I don't beat myself up anymore. I take time to love me and others. With God's grace, I will maintain."
