I remember my doctor telling me not to worry that the cure was coming in less than 5 years ... still hoping for that and for my kids to never get it ... Lately my A1C have been increasing and I don't like that ....specially because I don't really know or understand the causes of that and that put me down ... but I will fight and always do my best to be better every day ....for me , for my supportive husband and for my 3 reasons to live the longer I can !!!
