Curing Myself of Diabulimia

Posted on March 21, 2011 at 6:48pm 27 Comments

I'm going to try to cure myself. My A1C is 10.5 a couple months ago and rising. My average blood sugar is over 600. I am going to try to stop now. I'm 108 and I'm afraid I will gain soooooooo much weight but I think I have to do this. Please, please, help me, anyone, anyone support you can give, I am SO AFRAID.
