    Hi Kevin,

    Your reply brought tears to my eyes, you are such a sweet man, to me you are very courageous it takes an awful lot of guts to admit that you have made mistakes in life and are suffering terribly as a result, we all think it won't happen to us.

    I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with my daughter and was warned that I would probably get diabetes in later life. There is nobody in my family who has had diabetes so I thought I would get away with it, I carried on being a chocoholic and eating all the wrong things I had a terrible sweet tooth and wasn't satisfied with one piece of cake I would always have two, and here I am now almost twenty years to the day with T2 Diabetes. I have been borderline for probably about 2 years, but didn't do anything about it, if I had taken action straightaway I would not be in this situation today and could have delayed the onset for a few more years.

    Your sad story has certainly shocked me into looking after myself, and the reality of what may lie ahead if I don't is terrifying. I am truly grateful that you allowed me and the rest of the forum into your life to help us not to suffer as you have.

    I know you must be very scared and who wouldn't be in your situation, it takes someone very special to care about others when they are suffering so much, and Kevin YOU ARE VERY SPECIAL.

    Take care, speak soon.

    A BIG HUG to you and your family.

    Love Marilyn xx

    Sending you love and hugs, you have been an inspiration to me and I'm sure to many others. At the moment my control is a bit haywire and there seems no pattern to work on but I know I have to control it somehow thanks to you. Take care of yourself and your family x

    Sorry folks, didnt realise AutoCorrect had took on my last post !!!


    Anyway thanks all for the support, we love you all, there may be another big post soon with recent details, Drs now think 18 months max if I stay on very strict regime,

    Think of me when Pollen count is high as I can't go out on those days, recent development, my eyes puff up so much I can't see. !

    Email me people who have it, i'd love to hear how your all doing,

    Hi kman. I've not been around for a while so I hope your going well. Just read the last few posts and its a bit of good news from the Doc.... I've been off the wagon for a while and I'm really feeling it. I was doing so well too while I was training for a small duathlon. But I got a chest infection just before it so couldn't do it and my healthy regime hit the skids. That was 7 weeks ago and I've been sliding ever since. however I've just glanced through some of your scariest posts and its knocked be back on track. Keep up the good work, but only when you can. Nobody on here wants you to to more than you feel you can but you are a real motivator..... Thank You. Best wishes to the family.....
