I hope everyone had a great Christmas and wonder New Year. I know everyone wants to lose weight for there new years resolution. I just want to lower my AlC under a 8 and of course lose some weight. I saw some oneone facebook saying I want to lose weight to get rid of their diabetes (type 2). I wish type 1 was that easy. I stuggle every day with this disease.

I guess it is good to vent about problems

I just lay in bed and pray because that is all I can do. I am also still having mild seizures. Which is scarring me…

Well some of them was nice and the others was mmm not very friendly. But that is why I am so close to my moms side.
