Well after being accepted in the Nursing Program at my college, I spent too many hours sitting at a desk studying, grabbing food when and where I could because I felt I didn't have much time to cook, and not exercising for the same reason. And now I weigh my highest amount ever in my life. I have type 2 diabetes and I have knee pain. With my right knee, I have a tear in my meniscus, some wear and tear, as well as some arthritis. My insurance is fighting me on the surgery my doctor says I need (he is very well respected). In the mean while, my final semester in nursing school as well as my new career lies in the balance. No one is going to hire me if I have these knee issues. I may not be able to finish school because of it. I just ask that any of you that may read this, please pray for me. I only have 7 weeks left before school starts back. I need to be ready for this somehow. I am revamping my diet and whatever exercise I can attain. I have a stationary bike and I pray I can use it without too much pain. Thanks for any encouragement or info you offer. Unfortunately I do not have access to a pool which I think would be ideal.
