Hi there everyone that is on my friends list and whoever reads this my name is Karen and I have been married for over 20 yrs to a wonderful man he is my rock and we have 3 great kids and my oldest one is going to be a mommy in June and I have a son that is 20 yrs old and daughter that is 17 yrs old and the last one in High school she is a senior.
I have been a diabetic for the last 4 yrs right before the Christmas holidays I did not know I had the disease I went in for my yearly physical and that is how I found out about this disease I had none of signs that they describe that they listed on website and yes it is quite a shock on some one especially when you are getting ready to start baking the cookies and everything else that comes with the holidays and yes it was very depressing without a doubt but when you got a great support system like your kids and your husband they are my my support. My youngest one said to me that I will never forget "Mommy I will always be there for you no matter what"
And I do it by diet and excercise alone and I have lost over 100 pounds and I can tell you it is very hard to do it diet alone my doctor is so amazed on how I am doing and he ask everytime how I did it and I tell him I read lables and I strict myself to the intake on what I am eating and I do the fist thing of how much I need to eat and that works for me it is very easy and it is not hard to do you just have to watch what you eat. I am not on no medicine at all for this disease yes I do test about 6-10 times a day to watch my sugar and when I do get busy I do forget to eat and TRUST me I do feel it and boy it is BAD.
Yes like I said my oldest daughter and my son in law are going to be parents in June and yes going to be a first time grandparents and yes we are very excited about this and yes we do know that it is a going to be a baby girl and my husband and I cannot wait for this little addition into the family to arrive the family is getting bigger.
There will be more to post on here as time goes by.
