So November 2008 I was told after feeling like I had the flue that I was “Diabetic” Got a few days worth of shots from nurse then told as I was an overweight 51 year old must be a T2 Diabetic. WOW! life-saving scary moment,
Back then found the TU group here. Became ultra-fit with help from peps here, cycled a lot, my wife ays became obsessive about been fit and eventually 5 years ago quit all meds, Doctors agreed I was all good
Now 5 years - Diabetes got angry and thought I will show you and hit me big time. before Xmas, I thought I know that feeling, blurring vision, got old meter out, wow 26Mmol, where did that come from?
Back to Docs, Mike, you have Diabetes, 3 weeks later I am on Insulin. feels good. I feel good blood glucose is an average of 6.2 Mmol. I cycle when I can. today 30km and loving life. What an A … hole disease but ladies and gents there is so many worst ways to suffer, I have lost 2 friends to cancer, what a horrible way to suffer. We don’t deserve what we have but could be a lot worse,
What I have learned is that while I may not be cured, there is no reprieve, but there is a lot worse hand I could have been handed, life is good
