"Hi, Sandy, About insulin -- you do what you need to. If oral meds or even diet and exercise work, great, but if you need insulin, then you take it. It's not the end of the world, nor is it a failure. Hoping for the best for you! :-)"

ok, FJ, I just noticed you are managing on diet and exercise. The only other type 2 I am familiar with here doing that is Judith

http://www.tudiabetes.org/profile/Judith23

and I know she is on a low carb regime. Have you considered seeing a CDE for advice? Remember it is not considered failure if you have to go on meds or even insulin. I do know that much about type 2.
At 1:19pm on March 16, 2011, Marie B said…
Hey, FJ, sorry I'm not as knowlegeable on the type2, I know we have a relatively new Group here for type 2
http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/type2

and Natalie, the Group creator, seems to have a good head on her shoulders. You see, as a type 1, I would love to have those numbers! also I noticed in that Group are two of my good type2 friends, Pauly, and Joe_H. Pauly's been able to lose tons of weight, and Joe I think is running marathons. Let me know if you'd like any more links.

Hey! :) Been a while... Well, I now work at Target, overnights... Doing much better, and happier... They give me two half hour breaks every night, so I don't have to worry about taking care of myself. For now, it's a temporary job that could turn into permanent... and if it does, then I will have benefits... So yay! :) The store is remodeling, so we are helping set up all the new types of racks, and displays, with the remodel, and everything.... and it's kind of fun. Lots of nice coworkers, too. I'm enjoying it. :) Weight, well... been naughty, and gained about 10 lbs. lol Up to 180, from 170... but not the end of the world... All this stress had been getting to me, and when it does, the BG numbers and binge eating go up, too... sadly. Anyway, I am doing better now, and looking to stabilize myself. :) Really tired of Winter. lol

Thanks for the reply FJ....
Man, you can't win can you lol Don't beat yourself up....we've all done it! Just move on from there, and no...all is not lost (unless you're still digging into that jam!)
So frustrating...what's even more frustrating is when you eat something taboo and nothing dramatic happens...then on a day when you've been on you're best behaviour, putting angels to shame....you come up with a surprise high...not sick...not stressed!!! What the heck is THAT all about!!!
