Welcome to both of you. Spark is a great place to find fellowship with others who are going through the same things you are.

Sueliv - I know how it feels to be terrified when you first get diagnosed. Just try to take it one day at a time. And don't think of diabetes as a death sentence but rather a license to live healthier than ever before!

If either of you guys need anything or anyone to talk to, feel free to spark mail me.

God Bless!
Sam

HELLO, I'M NEW HERE ALSO...I AM ALSO NEW TO DIABETES AND HAVE HAD ABOUT THREE FULL WEEKS OF WORRYING ABOUT THESE NUMBERS. I STARTED AT 504 AND NOW SEEM TO BE STUCK IN THE HUNDREDS EXCEPT FOR A QUIRK OR TWO I FALL BELOW A HUNDRED. I STICK TO MY MEAL PLAN AS MAPED OUT BY THE DIABETIC NUTRICIANIST AND DO MY EXERCISES AS I AM SUPPOSED TO. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO REACH MODERATION IN THESE NUMBERS. I AM SO AFRAID OF HAVING TO USE A NEEDLE AND TAKE ANYTHING BUT THE PILLS THEY ALREADY HAVE ME TAKING.
I HAVE SO MANY DISABILITIES TO ADD TO THE PROBLEM ...HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, COPD, IBS, ARTHRITUS,AND SOME SMALL THINGS.

I TAKE A HUGE AMOUNT OF MEDS EVERYDAY IN FACT I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW THERE'S ROOM FOR FOOD! LOL I DO MY EXERCISES FROM A CHAIR BECAUSE I CANNOT STAND FOR LONG OR WALK VERY FAR. I USE AN ELECTRIC WHEELCHAIR MOST OF THE TIME. I AM HOPING THAT AFTER I GET ABOUT 50 #'s OFF I MIGHT BE ABLE TO START WALKING SHORT DISTANCES. I'VE ALREADY LOST 30 #'s AND WILL FIND OUT TOMORROW IF I'VE LOST MORE WHEN I GO TO THE DOCTOR. I WEIGH IN AT HIS OFFICE AS SCALES ARE OBSESSIVE TO ME SO I JUST USE HIS.

BY THE WAY...DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW I WOULD BE ABLE TO SHORTEN MY SIGNITURE. IT'S SO LONG AND TAKES UP SO MUCH SPACE. GUESS THAT'S ALL FOR NOW ...LOOKING FORWARD TO HEAR FROM EVERYONE. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO VISIT MY SPARK PAGE AND LOOK AT THE PHOTOS OF HURRICANE KATRINA COMMING ON SHORE IN MISSISSIPPI. GOD BLESS TO YOU ALL...

Hi everyone! I was diagnosed with Type 2 a couple of years ago. I did really well and brought the numbers down and then got really complacent. Now I'm trying to get motivated again and thought that this group may be just the motivation I need.
