"Your diabetes may vary" is a phrase often repeated on this site. For my title I chose to substitute "Type 2" for the word "Diabetes. I did this because type 2 is extremely variable. It has many forms requiring different levels of treatment.
I write this because someone complained to me that my last blog A type 2 Blog was depressing. He went on to explain that he controlled his D with diet and exercise. This gentleman also expressed that he finds that TuDiabetes is an insulin dependent site that does not express his views of diabetes.
I reject the notion that my previous blog was depressing, it was an honest explanation of how my life as a long term T2 has evolved. It was my way of saying I'm still alive and kicking even through all that diabetes has thrown my way.
I do agree with this gentleman that the views of T2 diabetics are not well represented here, especially those well controlled with diet and exercise. There are many among our numbers but they are often silent.
My challenge to this gentleman and to all the silent T2s is to let us know what your life as a T2 is like. Help us to understand your diabetes.
It will be interesting to see just how much Type 2 diabetes varies.
