Like "I can honestly say;I know how you feel.When they told me was a diabetic.They wanted to start me on shots right away.I said whoa can we try the pills first.They did with diet , excerise,and meds. I've been able to control my blood sugars.The best adivce I can give you is , that you take the attitude,I'm going to control this.It's not going to control me.If they have the class there on diabetes.Take it.It really does help. your Friend Darlene"
