    Unhappy I think I'm diabetic

    I know I had been insulin resistant when I was diagnosed with PCOS... and I think I'm diabetic. I'm very scared. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow... I think I've had symptoms for awhile, but I've always been in denial about my health, especially since I've always been a bigger girl. I am terrified. I feel like such a failure for letting myself become this sick....

    What makes you think so? And what did the dr say?

    What symptoms do you have? and have you had your test results?

    In the same boat here!

    Felt so ashamed of letting myself go. Doctors told me not to get pregnant untill i get ahold of my sugars. What a blow, I eas devestated. forget the PCOS, which i was diagnosed at the same time, I had to first and foremost get ahold of my diabetes.

    I am also a big girl, but i am slowly taking the reins back on my life and making better life decisions. its been 8 weeks, and my sugar levels are down about 100 pts and im down 30 lbs and i've become more regular.

    It doesn't help to get sad about all other bad decisions that got you here (leads to more eating) but start to feel good about all the little good descisions you are making!

    I keep saying to myself that I want to be my own success story!

    and i am going to have that healthy happy baby me and my husband so desperately want, after i get healthy.
