On top of everything else...

I am a type 2 diabetic. I was diagnosed with diabetes around 14 years ago. I have taken various oral medications since then. I took the pills - faithfully but I didn't do much else. I seldom took my BG. I made up the #'s I told my doctor (like he wouldn't be able to tell I was lying from the A1c he was about to have drawn). That was then.

2 years ago I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. This changed my life a lot. I had to go gluten-free and I was good about it. I attended support group meetings and I read all labels before eating anything.

1.5 years ago I had a heart attack.

Now, I am going all out and taking care of my diabetes. I'm testing. I'm eating well. I'm exercising. I'm happy. I found the DOC and I love it here.

More later... I just wanted to give this a start and to come out of the closet with my diabetes.

Thanks for reading.
