My doctor told me at my diabetes check today that even if I do everything I'm supposed to, I can still have complications such as kidney problems. That is really frustrating. I thought that as long as I did everything I needed to, I wouldn't really have to be worried about falling apart. I would really like to be one of those lucky type 2's who loose a lot of weight and loose all signs of diabetes. I know that is not a "cure", but it would be nice. I'm sure those of you with type 1 don't have too much pity for me because your issues are so much more complicated, but I needed to vent to someone who would understand. My family tries to be supportive, but they can make me feel like I'm making a big thing out of nothing sometimes.
