I've had type 2 diabetes for a while. I just didn't accept it, not until my eyes started failing and I had a stroke.

Now my right limbs don't work so well, I fight depressed feelings and I'm tired all the time... I'm working on meals, working out is a struggle, but I push myself. Planning healthy foods is a chore, especially when eating with others who eat whatever they want. I don't blame them, but it is hard.
