HON, DON'T BE SCARED. PUT YOUR TRUST IN THE LORD. I HAVE BEEN A TYPE 2 DIABETIC FOR OVER 30 YEARS. WHEN TOLD I WAS "BORDER LINE" & EVENTUALLY THAT I DID HAVE IT, I LIVED IN DENIAL FOR MANY YEARS. I DID NOT WATCH MY DIET--I WAS A "BREAD-A-HOLIC" & A "SUGAR-A-HOLIC". (NOT ANYMORE THO).

I WISH NOW I HAD LISTENED TO THE DOC & TOOK CARE OF MYSELF. I HAVE RETINOPATHY & HAVE HAD 6 LAZER SURGERIES DONE ON MY EYES. THEY ARE GOOD NOW & I ONLY NEED TO GO TO THE EYE DOC ONCE A YEAR FOR A CHECKUP.

I ALSO HAVE NEURAPATHY IN MY FEET. THAT CAN BE VERY PAINFUL. I AM ON MEDS TO CONTROL THAT PAIN.

I HAD TO HAVE OPEN HEART SURGERY A COUPLE YEARS AGO.

ALL THESE THINGS BECAUSE I DID NOT LOSE THE WEIGHT & TAKE CARE OF THE DIABETES YEARS AGO.

YOU NEED NOT HAVE ANY FEAR OF THESE THINGS HAPPENING TO YOU IF YOU HEED YOUR DOCTORS ADVICE & TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF TODAY.

"TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE."!

YOU ARE LUCKY THEY DID NOT PUT YOU ON MEDS SO FAR. I AM TAKING SHOTS & ORAL PILLS. PRAISE GOD THAT I HAVE MY BLOOD SUGARS UNDER GOOD CONTROL TODAY.

YOU CAN DO IT, SWEETY. TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME & TRY NOT TO WORRY ABOUT IT. WORRYING CAUSES STRESS & STRESS WILL RAISE THOSE SUGARS.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT LOSING SOME WEIGHT? I AM WORKING ON GETTING MY "OVERWEIGHT" UNDER CONTROL--NEED TO LOSE 75#. HAVE LOST 35# SINCE HEART SURGERY. I AM HERE IF YOU EVER NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO.

HUGS, ANGEL

Hi, I am Glenys of Australia. I was diagnosed yesterday with type 2 diabetes. I am 53, suffer from hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia and now diabetes. I need to lose about 110lbs. I am feeling scared and overwhelmed right now. The doctor hasn't got me on insulin or medication yet as he feels it can be controlled by diet and exercise. Please pray for me as I am terrified of eye problems mainly.

Blessings

Glenys
