yes I hear what you all are saying but I am the type of person if I am not sick, don't call me sick or treat me like I am. I just don't like pill popping if I can help it. Every day I get up and feel great, my doctor told me my a1c was 6.2 and that was great, it seems like a waste of time to go to these doctors who act like you are either crazy, or just another medicaid person looking for some sympathy, I take care of myself I really do. My health is very important to me but it hurts my feelings when I am told I am okay go live your life and my body is telling me other wise. If you keep telling yourself you are sick you will think you are. I still cry over this cause of the advice I get from people is crazy but I have struggled with my health all my life I do what I can the rest is in God's hands.

You are another member here that is in complete denial. Eventually you will suffer the consequences and then realize that you do indeed have a disease that can be managed with lifestyle changes and medication if needed. I urge you to think about your attitude and decide if losing a toe, foot, leg, eyesight or your life is worth being so stubborn.

Thanks for posting cnadygirl53.

I don't think a diagnosis of "diabetes" should be seen as someone calling you "sick". I completely understand that you would like to avoid medication and you got some great support and suggestions from this community.

I hope you continue to to take care of yourself and address health issues so you can stay healthy.
