The problem with DLife

Difference from being on insulin and on oral meds

DLife brought this up, but only touched on it briefly. One of the reasons I'm on insulin, is that I could in no way control my diabetes on oral medications.

One of the primary reasons I couldn't, is that you take a fixed dose of medication and have to drastically modify your diet. Not only what you eat, but when you eat.

Well, I couldn't do that. I still can't do that. Right now, I can control what I eat, but not how much and when. I know it sounds weird, but the more I try to do it, the worst it gets, and the worse I feel. Its how I have coped with stress all my life. Once the stress hold lesses, it will get easier.

However, right now, I'm waking up wondering what I could have done to make this year better. I can't quite figure it out, and may yet realize I just did the best I could -- but in the meantime, I'm still stressed out.
