Subject: [No Subject] I am having trouble with eating in general! I guess I am in somewhat of denial. When I was first diagnosed with Diabetes type two, I lost weight and kept my blood sugar in check. Now I eat sweets and anything else I want. I do still work out three to five times a week. HELP!!!!

Subject: Hang In there, Lee! Dear Lee, I can totally relate to the denial issue! I have had type II diabetes for the past 4 years and at 1st I went through the whole weight loss exercise thing. Now it seems like I am in the angry/denial phase. I recently had to go from the oral medication and Lantus 1x a day to oral medication, Lantus 1x a day and shots before every meal. I have been off work for 3 weeks now trying to adjust to blood sugars near or above 300 and constant fatigue. I returned to work for a day and a half only to have them rise again. I am tired all of the time and it seems that the more I try and watch my diet, the higher my sugars seem to climb and the tireder I get. I have three teenage daughters who are constantly on the go, and add that along with trying to be a working, single mom with high blood sugars and it is a catastrophe. I know what I need to do as far as the diet and exercise goes but have no energy to do it. Diane --------------- From: Cindy
Subject: Re: GlucoMenu Support-Group Lee, It has been over a year for me being diagnosed and I am still in denial. I keep telling myself that as long as I get all this weight off, it will all go away. I guess I need help too. haha Cindy ---------------
