Let it out! Rants are more than welcome here. We all have times that are hard and we all understand your frustrations. Know this is a safe place to let it all out.

I have been at it for less than 6 months, and I already feel beat down.

See if you can look into ways of eliminating the needles and tablets. I take none, but it required a lot of learning and some adjustment to how I live and most of all how I eat. Those changes were beneficial in a long list of ways well beyond just eliminating high blood sugar.

To be honest, I rather LIKE diabetes. Dealing with it has made me much healthier and happier. I even love food more. Heck, I'm even thinking of going back to college in my 60s to study biochemistry and nutrition to further fill in all the things having this has prompted me to go out and learn!

Might not be possible for everyone. I wish that it was. In some cases the damage may be beyond easy repair.

I am sorry for your frustration. This is a good place to vent. I hope tomorrow is a better day.

I am thankful that I really like most of the foods that keep my numbers down. What gets to me is those nights when my feet won't let me sleep. Diabetes also tells me, "no sleeping in for you!"

No words of wisdom here, just a fellow diabetic wishing you the best.

Are you tired of following a proper way-of-eating? If that part is out-of-whack, then everything else is going to be a battle royale. If you continue to eat carbs, you're going to be waging war for the rest of your life. Once you make up your mind to embrace LCHF, the other issues will be less daunting.

Why don't you remind us of all your management methods? What pills, what shots, what food you eat. I suspect there's some cleaning up to be done, and we can help you with that, if you're willing to work with us.

I feel badly that you've chosen the user name you have, because 'just tryin' doesn't cut it. We have to buckle down and just DO IT, which makes everything a lot easier. We aren't here to pat you on the head and hold your hand. We can teach you how to manage this, but you must be willing to learn, and I don't think you are.

I got chased off one of those websites for saying what I thought.

That's why I'm here, and not there.

I got banned . . . and all I thought was that LCHF worked better than anything the docs or the ADA/CDA had to offer.
