Hi Louise it is good to meet you and welcome you to the diabetes type 2 community. I have had type 2 since 2001 and it has been a journey. I take on average 3 to 4 insulin shots a day and another 1 time a week. It didn't start out that bad at first it was just monitored and a pill. Then it was ME that didn't eat the right things. Thought I could control my sugar and sweet addiction, but that was only a pipe dream. I did finally get it under control by alot of prayer and not having sweets in the house no matter how much of a craving I had. I will be here for you if you want to talk.

Hi Robert C thank you for your welcome . I have been a type 2 since 2007. The hardest thing has been to understand is. Even though the doctor was prescribing me medication she didn’t seem to know much about it. I take 1 pill daily. It is now somewhat under control. It goes up sometimes to over 120, to 175,it has even gone up to the 300’s. But that don’t happen too often. I love sweets as well, but I have learned how to have some once in a while. Not all the time maybe twice a month. And I drink plenty of water. There’s a lot of things that come along with diabetes and I’m trying to deal with them. I do get discouraged a lot so I spend quite a bit of time praying for myself and other’s. Thanks for making yourself available to me.

Welcome to the Wisdo community. My name is Roger and I have joined the Wisdo app in February of 2019 and I am now a Helper. I couldn’t have done it without my Wisdo community support system. Helping one person might not change the world, but to help one person could make a difference in their world. It is an environment where you will feel the peer to peer support, you will feel some comfort and you’ll want to join in the chats. We all support one another without judgments, and you’ll certainly find some comfort too. I call the Wisdo community my new home. A home to a better and healthier life. I’m hoping and wishing that you will find your self worth, self determination and self discipline by joining us. Be loyal to yourself and participate in the chats and reach out when you feel the need.
