I developed Diabetes about 8 years ago. My father had it and so did my uncle. I hate that I have to deal with all the stuff that goes along with diabetes. It seems like the more I try to eat correctly the more I want to eat junk. to top it off I have hypothyroidism. I feel like I run an uphill battle with these two health issues. I go from blood sugars of 350 for a while then I gain control and they are down to 90-120 then back up again to 300s. its such a drag. Then my thyroid meds get changed and then the cycle begins again. Its like I walk this balance beam with my endocrine system and if I step off the beam just a little I fall on my butt! Right now they are out of control. Im working on trying to get it back where it needs to be because I feel lousy all the time with high blood sugars. I just found out my son at 12 is begininng to show signs of pre diabetes already. So I need to control mine and help him keep it from developing. Im just so tired of it all!
