    Please speak to somebody Alex_B Life is so precious yet soooo short. I lost my wife after treatment for cancer at just 49 and then with all the stress of that after a visit to the Doctor when I was getting one cold after another in a row, a full M.O.T they tell me I was border line diabetes so changes to diet took place but had no effect, then in 2016 diagnosed Type2 and had been for some time... Big personal crash for me.
    I sank to the bottom of each bottle of whiskey which made things worse of course. Here a year later with support from wonderful friends life is good, Diabetes does take over your life but it's part of the learning curve to change to adapt and make better choices regarding diet and life style.
    Life really is for living. Help is always out there but you have got to own up ask for it.

    One year, I've been doing this for nearly thirteen years! Do you think it is easier for me as my condition deteriorates as the years progress. I would gladly give up....but 10,000 voices beg me to stay alive. So I live for them. Is there anything else?
