Over the past few months I've been going through a lot. I wasn't as over my last marriage as I thought I was. Well I'm back with a new job, a new relationship and a new chance to try and make a difference with my health.

I've decided to give Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution a try as nothing else has seemed to make a difference. I eat according to the ADA "diet" and my sugars are still out of control. The funny thing is how many of my friends try to be helpful with suggestions about what I should and shouldn't eat. I appreciate their concern but I don't need one more person telling me how to "cure" my condition. There is no damn cure, only management. So I vent here a bit since you all should understand, or at least will have better information than the general public.

And I still don't care for Paula Deen.

Hope Dr. Bernstein's book helps you as much as it did me. I credit him with giving me my life back. No surprise ADA dietary recommendations result in bad results. I couldn't wait to get off their roller coaster.

I hear you on unsolicited advice--arrgh.

Hurray for new beginnings!

Yes, a very bright future! There's a Dr. Bernstein group, if you want to join it.

Thanks for the tip Gerri. I've found it and joined. I'm about to post my first question from my reading last night.
