Looking for friends

Hi,

My name is Elizabeth and I have had per-diabetes for 16 years. In the last 6 months I have escalated from per to type 2, I was shocked and at the same time I know it had escalated. I had the blurry vision, excess thirst, and going every 5 min. When the nurse told me my A1C was a 7.1 I just cried. I worked so hard to keep this from happening that I could not believed I failed. :unsure: I was trying to lose the weight ( but not very seriously). I sometime think that this was the best thing that could happen to me besides losing my home. :ohmy: I know that sounds bad but if I would have not gotten diabetes and lost my home, I think I would have died. Now I live with my mother and father and I have lost 33lb. :cheer: I have been eating healthier and joined a gym with my mother. We exercise everyday but on Sundays. My husband is a good support he loves me know matter what I look like. He is a type 1 diabetic and he is on 2 types of insulin. His pancreas has quite so he will be on it for life. He was in the hospital after Christmas last year and his A1C was a 17. :S I told him he did not know how much God had him in his hand. I cried and still do when I think about it. His A1C is now at a 10 we are slowly working on it. :) I also have 3 teenagers and Love them with all my heart. B)
