Hi thanks for your welcom,

yes I have taken control I know only too well with complications as my late mum had type 2 she had eye problems and was registered blind. I don't understand why I have slight diabetic problems with my right eye:confused: only been DX for 5 months before this so wondering now if I have had D a lot longer can't say I had any symtoms beforehand no point dwelling on the past live for today:)

Welcome Lanz :) I'm type 2 insulin dependant diabetic. This is a great place for support as people here have a clue. No doubt you probably did have diabetes undiagnosed before you were diagnosed. I often thought that about myself too. Along with keeping an eye on diet and exercise, also watch your health, stress levels, sleep pattern, etc... they all impact on your BGLs too. I've learnt that too well in last few years as I've had bad run with health & still trying to get myself sorted here. I can tell you some funny stories... but really it's not that funny as I've pretty much had enough of being unwell. I'm unimpressed that I've not been able to exercise properly... just going for walk with the family is an adventure as I'm following behind them in pain (and I normally would move fast) and belching badly... they are normally laughing and I get comments like "you can start your own gas plant". You're right about not dwelling on the past and living for today... keeping the attitude right is what makes all the difference whether we're doing well or not.... we can keep trying to do our best.

Ditto!

Exactly the same as he said, lol! It is a scary diagnosis to get but I have found this forum to be so helpful already.
Clea :)
