Thank you for taking the time to reply. I have read your answer 3 times now, and every time see another point to ponder. I eat low carb and walk every day, snow, rain or shine. The outdoors seems to help as there are no distractions, no tv, no housework undone, etc. A support center run by other diabetics would be great, as I do have people who will listen to me, but I feel they don't "get" me. And I do appreciate them too. There is only one other diabetic in my family, my older brother, and he and I have bonded stronger over this. He says I inspire him, when I don't feel like I can hardly cope. Others in the family say we are being bad, or tell me I can't eat something. Drives me nuts!! I tell them I can eat anything I want, I just choose not to. Thank you again. and please continue to write more as the mood strikes you.
