how to be diabetes free

Im newly diagnosed, only 3 months in and already sick of it..you get it right then it all changes and you’re levels are all over the place again. It plain sucks and noone gets it other than others with the awful disease. Happy to talk anytime..keep up the battle, ill tell you i get depressed and ive been a diabetic for 27 years.walking at the mall every other day about 3.5 miles through the whole mall.feeling lost of course the why me??.i have found something rather interesting to take my sugar down and feel quite good,,its boron tablets,one a day.anyone out there that takes boron please comment.ty..peace to you all.mikey, I’m a Type 2 and I know there’s a difference but we have some things in common we need to eat right and exercise daily. For me eating right was when I stopped eating man made processed foods two years ago. I was on insulin for 16 years (135 units a day) but after eating fresh foods, lean proteins, natural high fat foods and whole grains for a year I no longer need any diabetes medications.
I’ve been a diabetic since 2/2013 because of a severe pancreatic attack. Pancrease was necrotitizing and digesting itself. Had several abscesses, some quite large because of the pancrease, had multiple organ failure, mini kidney wound vax etc. Have peripheral neuropathy in both feet with bunions now and severe hammertoe. Lost all my muscle and grateful all the muscle came back. It was a very long healing time and continues to be a journey of healing with the multiple chronic health conditions I will have from now on. Many days I want to scream, give up, don’t care, was sick and tired of this the day it started. On bad days, I like to stay home, it’s where I’m most comfortable. I do my best to avoid negative situations and remain positive. I am a Christian and know that my relationship with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit see me through each and every day. Going to church and having fellowship strengthens me,  I’m a diabetic type 1 had it just over 10 years still not got great control not even good control tbh with u I’m been put on the insulin pump soon hopefully will have better control I have rebelled a lot thou and most likely why I’m in the pain I am now,  I am a type 2 diabetic..only oral meds..now..with no insurance。
I have had type 1 for 27 years..This is the worst and I don’t think I will ever just have it right..I have lost and received a kidney I try I eat right and do all it takes to take care of myself but at times I get tired..I have learned to never give up on myself no matter how much I fall down..This is the life God has chosen for me and I do not think that many people know that us diabetics need support just like a smoker that wants to quit..You can’t be around people that smoke it makes you want to have a cigarette..So us diabetics can’t be where unhealthy foods and activities are unless we have the strength and mind control to avoid temptation..This is a struggle and we have to pray and try to do all we can to stay healthy..Good luck to all, Totally get you, though my husband understands about my diabetes, there’s no one that truly knows how much it affects your daily life.. they don’t get the ups and downs.. it’s hard not having anyone that knows exactly what you go through! Type 1 for 11 years, Girl i am 23. Been diabictic i was three when i got it… It is hard pm me i hear you it is a struggle everyday some days better then others。
Hello Everyone I have a question, I’m type 2 I wanted to know what types of exercise can I do I’m trying to lose some weight and is it ok to drink fruit juice like the v8 strawberry juice,  I just had my blood test done today. I will find out what I am on Tuesday. I am Nervous but I know it had to be done, hi am type 1 from 8 years am 34 year old ill take insulin 40 morning and 40 dinner time even am looking v dull not energy, but iam good make my self strong ill try to control my blood suga, I don’t get like this when I am low, only high. I wish people understood that when I am high I can’t control my moods and I cannot control what I say to people. When I do apologize it sometimes does not make a difference, You get grumpy both ways….we love you no matter what you say, cuz sticks and stone may break my bones, but words will never hurt me, I’m not like this when my sugar is low only when it is running high. My outlook and personality changes a bit. I don’t like it。
I remember once chasing a room full of nurses out of the Quality Assurance Department’s lunch room. They had asked if they could use it for a meeting and were told they could, but they had to be out by our lunch (3 of the 6 people in the department were diabetic). To make a long story shorter, they were still in there 15 minutes after our lunch break should start and my blood sugar was dropping fast. I just went in and told them I had to eat and they needed to finish up elsewhere. Did I apologize, I only get like this when I am high. Saturday my poor husband got the worst of it when he couldnt decide what he wanted off the menu when we went out for lunch. He is so patient with me shame. He got me a big bottle of water and after i drank it i felt so much better i apologised to him,  I don’t think you have to apologise for a chemical imbalance that is often beyond your best efforts. I applaud all diabetics, Type 1 and 2. Everyday is a battle. Bring on the cure.
