About me, a married male. Onset of type 2 diabetes in 2003. I weigh 330 pounds. Blood sugar is out of control for months now. At night (during the witching hour) the blood sugar is at 233 and this morning its at 195. If and when I go on insulin shots I will loose my job as a driver. Currently bad things happened when I sorta failed my DOT Medical by having too high of blood pressure and sugar in my urine test. (sorta means the doc was nice to me and gave me one month medical card and get the sugar and the pressure under control; work or corporate is deciding to let me continue working there or not for safety reasons)
I sat down to the computer to look at the “perfect diabetic menu” and was trying to create yet another spread sheet of what I will eat and became frustrated to tears and did a search on the internet for diabetes and Overeater’s A. (OA) and found this site. I’m going to OA now. Am trying to hold it together until July when I’ll be able to get a gastric bybass. But if I loose my job I loose my insurance, and loose the bypass. I have Periferial neuropathy in my hands and my feet and the medication: gapapentin makes my loose my will power as if I had enough of that to begin with.
Night time is the tough time for me. I just get more and more carbs until I am “high” enough.
….so tired of this battle…
