Like "Hi, My name is Barbara also known here of my dogs name (bighead). I must have had Diabetes for years and didn't know even though I went to several doctors and they never checked it. Finally I had a heart attack which was my second one and was in ICU for nine days, when I came home I wasn't getting my strength back and was bed fast, so my husband took me to a doctor again and my sugar was well over 600, They didn't think I would make it through the night. so the next morning I went to his house and he gave me a shot. I found a specialest and now I am taking 2 shots a day. I lost 65 lbs in 2 months. There are so many things I eat that I never did before but I am so thankful to be alive I can do it. I crave sweets and other things I use to eat but I just can't have them and I know it, so I eat healthy a lot of meats and sweet potatoes baked. I drink a instant breakfast drink and coffee for breakfast. which does raise my sugar some but I take 2 shots every day plus 16 heart pills. and my fingers stay sore from testing. You can do this sweetie, just set your mind to it as I did, I thought I was very healthy too, I sing gospel music and loved to play different outside games , swiming, and the works, but it has slowed me down very much. I am so glad God spared my life I will do what I have to do, and you can too. It want be easy I know I have been taking shots less than a yea. and I am sure you can get help with your meds,they are very high in cost if you have to pay for them but I am sure there is somewhere there is a place to supply them for you. Take care and God Bless!! Barbara "
