Welcome aboard. I was diagnoised this past October in a routine checkup in order to renew my scripts that I have been on over the past 10 years (high bllod pressure, High chol & respitory issues) A1C results came back at 14.8. No family history going back 2 generations. You hit it on the head - "Wrong Lifestyle". I decided that I was going to win this fight and have been the winner eventhough I am still on insulin. I have lost 50 lbs and follow the dietician's diet plan for Carbs, protein & fats!! has become my bible for recipes!!!

Plattsmouth, NE

Hey Guys....

I was diagnosed TODAY!!!! Can I just say....sorry to all who have been living with this...but this SUCKS!!!! I have no one to blame but bad genetics and my crappy life style...but still I am in the SHOCK and DEPRESSED moments of this new way of life. I DO realize there are a LOT more serious health issues that are WAY bigger then this!!!! My doctor is kinda surprised numbers are excellent....except I didn't tolerate that glucose tolerance know that icky orange syrup one.. I am 49 and have other issues as well...migraine headaches (4 types), long-term/permanent effects of a near fatal head injury 12 months ago (so balance is not always the best for exercising, and movement, sound and fast movement around me sometimes is an issue) allergies (onions. garlic and anything in those families , artificial sweeteners, beef, ) . With that list of "food issues" it has made eating at all a challenge...more of a chore...and eating out or what I don't make from scratch (anything pre-packaged, or mass name it) IMPOSSIBLE!!!! DO I SOUND LIKE I AM WHINING.....CAUSE I AM....allow me this moment of self pity.....

OK....NOW I AM DONE... known by many as "Sparky". I'm normally a very positive, fun loving, silly grandma...(and I use that term lightly....cause I am way cool). I love music (listening to and playing)....dancing.... wonderful family (hubby of 31 yrs and 3 grown children) and the Lord. I am the happiest in the rain, the fall, and by the ocean...funny cause I'm a prairie girl...

Thanks for being here and letting me vent...and having my back!!! YOU ROCK TEAM!!!

Catch you later...
