Summary:

It’s a long struggle; my long term goal is to keep my blood sugar and cholesterol levels as low as I can get them, so I can get to see my grandchildren graduate from high school.

When I was 14 years old, I had hypoglycemia and it developed into Type 2 diabetes. I used to be able to eat whatever I wanted.

When I first learned about the Type 2 diabetes, I thought my life was going to be over. I’m struggling really hard with the diet and exercising. I really need to do it. I had to stop feeling sorry for myself and crack down and diet and do all the regular things we’re supposed to do.

Even though I do cheat, I’m really trying to improve my health for my grandchildren. It’s a long struggle; my long term goal is to keep my blood sugar and cholesterol levels as low as I can get them, so I can get to see my grandchildren graduate from high school.
