Secrets of Success

Accepting The Facts



I think the most important thing I learned and am still learning, is that it is what it is!! I have Diabetes. I can control my BS, but Diabetes doesn't disappear. It took me months to admit that. To help control it, I do aerobic walking, mild strength exercises, drink lots of water,& limit carbs.

More Information:

With my Diabetes groups on SP I have an outlet when I get frustrated AND when I have success.

  • so true. Even though I recognized that I did have type 2 diabetes, a part of me was still in denial. How could I have missed the signs? My husband had had diabetes for several years; I should have been aware that something was wrong. Finally I had to move through that phase and get serious about taking control. - by JOANOFSPARK
  • My husband was just diagnosed and he doesn't take it seriously so I am reading all I can about it - it's good to know that others have gone through this denial and have realized it is REAL! Thanks for the posts. - by LSIG14
  • I had the same experience. The doctor did not make a big deal of my diabetes when it was detected almost 15 years ago. He told me matter of factly and said that I should lose weight. I think it would have helped if he made a bigger deal out of it. - by LOUMARG
