    1. How can i get myself back on track. I am going through a very hard I DONT GIVE A CRAP. Feeling i have very little motivation to try

      1. Hi Bethiem. I have experienced those times as well. I call it returning to my rebellious days of being a teenager. And you’re not alone. It happens to all of us, well, most of us. Here is an article that you may find helpful. https://type2diabetes.com/living/bad-day Or perhaps you have a friend or family member that can help you when you feel not strong. Your motivation will return. Sometimes we just have to wait for it to return. Maybe one of the other moderators will weigh in on suggestions. We’re here for you. Feel free to continue to reach out. Hugs! Shelley, community moderator 🇨🇦
