Well I am a type 2 diabetic found out this year. My life style was like this: I grew up in a very small town in Custer City Oklahoma, and since I never had any friends as I was growing up I was always depressed. So to cope with everything I eat a lot to make myself feel better.

When I first found out that I was a diabetic I was very upset and depressed I did not know what I was going too do with my life, and for the most part I thought about killing myself when I found out. I figured that I would be too much of a burden to my family and to my wife, but my wife Kim sat next to me when I was in the hospital bed she cried and I cried then she said to me that we will get through this together. She told me that she loved me very much and no matter what was going to happen down the road that she would be there for me no matter what.

I am a very lucky man to have her in my life. She has put up with a lot of stuff with me lol but she has also gone on my diet with me to help me as well. If I could ever give advice to anyone is this stick with your diet, stop eating candy and drinking pop or any caffeine. if you are lucky enough to have a wife like mine be good to her and do what ever she says to help you. Trust me, they are always right even though you think they have no idea what you are going through. I manage everything with my metformen pills and dieting,as well as walking 5 miles a day.
