Hi, So i have been diagnosed diabetic for about 5 years now. when i was first diagnosed i took it seriously.. for about a month.. i seem to go through phases.. i'll get gung ho and get serious about taking my meds and testing myself for a month or two. then i get wrapped up in "life" and just let it go.. i need help.. i want to get this under control. all the doctors i have been to tell me the same stuff. and lecture me.. but the only dr. i have ever had that i could talk to and be truthful with without fear of being chastised was the one who diagnosed me. and he moved out of state shortly there after, I just cant seem to get motivated. and i know my health should be my motivation.. but it doesnt seem to do the trick. I have not had regular soda since i was diagnosed.. that is probably the one good thing i have done this whole time. ( Diet soda only.. cant stand water.. and crystal light ect gives me bad heart burn after a few days of drinking it. ) Please.. can someone help me? oh, They have had me on insulin shots for awhile.. tho i dont take them oftain. it is kinda depressing to stab myself all the time.. have never been to an endo tho.
