I can relate to you all, i was diagnosed as "prediabetic" 3 mths ago, and ive gotten my blood sugars down pretty well, minus 7-8 a little high but ive lost 30 pds i guess im too the point where im like what other choice is there it doesn't come to you right away beleive me feel sorry for myself from time to time. And worry about my future but every day is a gift and just try and make the most of it there really isn't a choice. Im feeling a bit better since i started to give up the fight and pretend i didn't have it. There will always be ups and downs but i want the ups to outweigh the downs and the downs cant stay around along time i wont let em. If any of you need to chat during these ups and downs im here and would love to buddie up cause i could use the same support feel free to friend me anyone here. Good luck on your journey!! Stay strong!

We can do this!!!
Denise

No....you are not the only one. Thank God I was getting off the sugar anyway, but the meds and blood checks suck! Fortunately, this will also help my family....well at least I hope it will. My son found this website for himself and passed it on to me. Thanks to all of you, we will have people to help us along.

I was diagnosed last month and put on meds right away. I knew I wasnt feeling right. After a month of using my treadmill I have dropped my blood preasure- almost into the normal range, and am trying to lose weight to improve my sugar levels. Still trying to absorb it all.

I was diagnosed last week, and I am MAD!! But, I can't change the diagnosis, just have to deal with it. I am grateful that my numbers were not too high. Doc agreed to let me go without meds and get checked again in 4 months. During that time, I am following a diet and exercise program that will, I hope, allow me to live without meds. Wherever we start, we can all make it better with healthier habits. I miss some of my favorite treats, but will eat them sparingly when I see that I have made some good progress. I actually enjoy fruits and veggies more than I did in the past...I always liked both, but usually chose processed foods instead. Here's to better health for all of us!! emoticon

I feel the same way - I was actually losing weight so I thought this would not happen. But I have to keep telling myself that it is what it is and I can deal with it.

No, you are not the only one who feels this way--I was diagnosed about a month ago and am the only one in my family who has it--I felt like my body was breaking down at the age of thirty!! Good luck to you--pour that anger into eating right and exercising!!

Don't stress and God bless!

I was diagnosed about 3 months ago and I'M not over being mad about it either.
Being mad isn't going to help or hurt the cituation. Try to study up on everything and ask a lot of questions in the process. I do know that if I lose this weight and start exercising while I control my food choices, that I can (possible) get off medication and out of the diagnosis. That's a possibility I can poor all this energetic energy into and if I do all that I can and am still stuck with this disease then I will be tired of being mad by then and get on with life.
At least that's my goal.....
Good luck!
