My best friend found out yesterday that she had diabetes...She called me and said she needed to talk. Poor Sasha, she was always afraid of diabetes. Her father has had diabetes disease since he was 45. Sasha believed he could still escape it by leading healthy style of living. Instead, he was spending all his time at work trying to maintain two of his business offices, smoke 2 packs of cigarettes per day and was drinking heavily during the weekend while going to a sauna with his buddies. By age 44, Sasha's father,Mike, gained more than 40% of his original weight and started having heart problems. The situation got worse, when the specialists found out that Mike had had diabetes for a while and he needed to go to the hospital. Sasha's father not only refused to go to the hospital but also continued working and smoking lots.... to be continued...

I want to connect with other people and share real-life frustrations. I'm frustrated by all the educationally-oriented crap that's out there on diabetes and having a hard time finding people to connect with in terms of talking about real-life situations. It's even hard to talk to family and close friends - some of whom don't even know I'm diabetic. There are a lot of daily frustrations I encounter because of the restrictions of this disease. People pushing me to eat a certain way or do things when I know they aren't healthy for me.
