Terrific! I am so happy to have a buddy to share notes with. It isn't so easy 13 years later, but then I am 13 years older as well and have been slowed down by back surgery. I quit losing weight after a while but managed to lose some this past spring when I fractured my shoulder. I couldn't cook much so I ate less and slept off the pain pills. It has taken me some time to learn which foods will spike the blood sugar and which ones I can get by with by eating only once.
My son's doctor has him eating two bananas a day and taking the Metformin at different times. My Endocrinologist can't see me anymore because I am below 7.0 on the AiC test and my thyroid medicine is stable, so I am on my own, because my family doctor says nothing to me. I have struggled this summer but having others who understand helps so much so I am no so isolated. I changed churches and that solved a social eating problem. Diabetes is a big job but I am happy that my eye test showed no damage from diabetes from the camera photo the doctor took. No glaucoma, no macular degeneration, and my mammogram was normal. My blood pressure is down but there is more work there to do. I worked a Sudoku puzzle with no cheating to look up the answers.
Life is good on the farm. Dorisena
