    Hey, I have had diabetes since 1998 and still can't get it under control. Mainly due to me snacking throughout the day, because I don't have the patience to cook. It affects my life in all aspects of it, my mood, my motivation my self image... I think it might diabetic depression because I always find myself justifying my poor choices by saying "if it weren't for the diabetes!" I'm now classified as a brittle or fragile diabetic and I am so worried that I will wake up in the hospital wishing I did more to prevent such unnecessary results. I know I just need to do it, and do it now, but does anybody have any suggestions? I want to go to a diabetic boot camp if there is such a thing because I am the type of person who says "if it isn't broken, why fix it?" and since I feel ok today it doesn't change. Help! I live in Chilliwack, bc, Canada and am 28 years old.

    I've had diabetes since 99 and it was out of control for most of that time. I went to the ADA call to congress event in dc a few years back and it changed my perspective. You take control of the disease don't let it take control of you. I have two complications now from out of control diabetes. Not fun. Find a diabetes friend in your city you can motivate each other in person. and sites like this and support groups always help you not feel alone out there. It's def a struggle having it but you can put it in check and tell it who's boss.
