How do you Except it ??? I have had 4 Heart Attacks 4 Stent Implants , I have C O P D in my Lungs, I am in a Wheelchair after 5 yes 5 Strokes and then the Diabetis Type 2 comes along, How do i accept it ??? NO problem life is to short to be worrying about Diabetis any one of my Medical Conditions can kill me and we must all pass away no one lives for ever, So get on with what you have left or Worry too much brings Stress which is also a Killer, Be Positive and thank God you are still alive as i do and i get out and about and go on several Holidays all over Europe each Year , Just 2 Years ago i Travelled to East Asia Namely Malaysia 2 weeks and continued from Malaysia to Hanoi in Vietnam on my own " SOLO " on a fold up Scooter which fold up to fit into a car Booth or any Coach. So come on there is a lot to live for in life without worrying about Diabetis, Just be very Carefull and do as you are Informed by your Diabetic Nurse or Doctor.
