Hi Pam, Thanks for you comments on my post. I knew when I posted it it would hit a lot of T'2 in the face. I hoped it would make a person take a hard look at what they are doing.

The most challenging part for me was the food part. I learned that for me the most important thing was to watch the carbs and not worry about the fat so much. Counting carbs taught me what was okay for me. I was Ok as long as I could have some of the not so lean foods.

So sorry about your back. Debilitating:( I soak in a hot tub with a lot of Epsom salts for hip pain. Hope you're feeling better soon!

Pam, do a search on this site and see if you can find a group in your area that meets close to you. Just click on the groups tab at the top of the page. There are groups for each type of diabetes and if you scroll down there are regional lists where states and areas have groups and most meet some where.

In the mean time all of us here will be honored to be your friends and help you through this. Although most of my problems are more from the sports I played as a young man and not listening to doctors advice, I am still having some effects from D.

I was on oral meds and forced the issue with my doctor to go on insulin. The oral meds would not control my BG levels. Insulin has been a God send to me. I am on lantus now but have been on many others including U500.

So vent when you need to. There will be someone here who feels like you do or has. Just remember above all else...YOU CAN DO IT!!.
