After 13 years of suffering I am finally having a major surgery to put an end to what has been a monthly nightmare. On Nov. 3, 2010 I am having a full hysterectomy including my uterus, cervix, ovaries, etc. because I was diagnosed with very early cancer cells in those organs. I have always just silently suffered with things in my life instead of facing them headon and getting them taken care of. I dont know why. I have done this with my female health and with my diabetes. For the past few months I have been trying to get my blood sugars down and lose weight without a lot of success but I am here on this site and trying to learn as much as I can about living as a diabetic. I cannot ignore it, it will not go away, I am going to face it headon. I wish for prayers so that I can make it through this surgery and heal without complications. After I heal up completely, I am going to tackle this diabetes with even more strength and hopefully get it under control so that I am controlling it and its not controlling me. Thanks for reading.
