Day 1

I am not diagnosed [yet] but I have good instincts, I am reasonably intelligent and have a pretty good idea of what is going on with my body.

If it is as simple as modifying my diet, I can do that. I had to do it when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes almost 7 years ago.
I can do it again. I don't have a passionate love affair with food. I have some favorites, but I will happily [read: begrudgingly] give them up if I must.
If I have to give up certain foods I will do it. especially if it means I will feel better and spend a lot less time sitting in my bathroom.
I am about to put a TV/DVD player in there complete with a collection of my favorite DVD's.

I do have a serious wonderment... Why is it as I get older I am plagued with more health issues. Life should be getting easier, NOT more difficult.
