I was just diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes 2 weeks ago....my hemoglobin A1C was 12. I actually found these facts out from my ob/gyn. She told me that I would need insulin because my pancreas basically crashed and burned!! I was like totally freaking out because I feel fine! My dad and one sister are both Type 2 and take Metformin. I am less (as my dad says "fluffy") then the two of them and I need insulin? My ob/gyn said this is because obviously I've had it for awhile uncontrolled and didn't know it..... I found this out exactly 13 days ago, cut out pretty much ALL my carbs, started eating tons of veggies and I've lost as of today 10 pounds! Talk about scaring you into dropping the weight! I feel that's pretty awesome even though I had to really crack down because of diabetes. I am extremely happy because I am finally in "onederland." I weighed myself this morning and weigh 192, I haven't been below 200 pounds since my son was born 7 years ago. I had him, got down to 174 pounds and then ballooned back up all the way to 245.5 by January of 2011. Well, thanks to good ole' diabetes (not) I will definitely continue to loose the weight now because I want to nip this in the bud and I know weight loss is what will do it! I go to see my primary doctor Thursday to find out about the insulin and whatever, I couldn't get an appointment right away but atleast with the weight loss in the last two weeks the doctor will see that I am serious about taking care of this.

    Happy Birthday DONE GIRL
    Persons born on the Cancer-Leo Cusp can be a bit volatile, swinging quickly from one extreme to another. Movement of one sort or another is familiar to them; physical movement, emotional movement… it is all one and the same to them. They often appear shy one minute and then they are stealing the spotlight the next.
    Combining Fire and Water together in a Cancer-Leo Cusp makes for an interesting study. Their vibrant energy is tempered by emotional sensitivity. In turn, their emotions are tempered by the intense ambition they have. They are graceful and strong. Both attributes serve them well.
    The fastest way to success for Cancer-Leo is to even out their highs and lows. Learning to maintain stability can pay off for them in a big way. Self-discipline can be attained without losing their spontaneity. By finding their calm center, they can remain confident in themselves.

    Cancer-Leo is sensitive to criticism. They may come across as so self-assured that they appear to be living in a fantasy world. They have a strong affinity to food. Imaginative in the kitchen, they can work miracles with a meal. They enjoy pleasure and social gatherings. They don't care to be alone most of the time. They are devoted to their partner. They are generous and creative in their relationships with others. They are good at empathizing with their loved ones.
    The Cusp of Oscillation creates people who are traditional, nurturing, flamboyant, ambitious, sensitive, proud, creative, expressive, inspiring, cheerful, practical, romantic, passionate, realistic, generous and emotional. They may also suffer from self-centeredness, hyper-sensitivity, and have dependency issues.
    Cancer-Leo may be an intellectual genius or they may be unscrupulous. They have excellent memories. They don't forget any detail… ever. They are fair, and will stand by both friend and foe in times of struggle. At the same time, they may have trouble letting go of grudges or slights they feel, whether real or imagined.
    This sign can conflict with Cancer's need for solitude and Leo's need to be the center of attention. If they can reach a comfortable balance, they will be much happier. Since both signs are affectionate and devoted, this rarely causes disruption unless they stray from their partner. Both signs hold family dear and love to spend time in their home. While Leo can stand up to some emotional bruising, Cancer cannot. They may be hurting deep inside and putting on a brave face. While Cancer makes their presence known through their works, Leo likes to make a splash. Those born on the Cancer-Leo Cusp may end up somewhere in between… shy with a bit of flamboyance. Both like to be in control, so this sign may end up trying to run the lives of their family members. emoticon
