Yesterday I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Which means I have to take pills and restrict my diet and get more exercise. Or I should, I don't know how successful I'll be. So much information is conflicting, and even the doctors advising me are conflicting. I'm very reluctant to take the pills because of the possible side effects, but the doctor says I won't know until I try it. Though "death" is hard to take one off a medication for. I seem to be better informed than the doctors, so I'll take their advice under advisement and make my own judgments. Diet is going to be hard to follow because of what food is actually available. Losing weight won't be a problem, though; that I can take care of. I'll see what happens.
