So fed up with this body!!

In the space of seven months my body has gone into revolt ( or should that be revolting) mode. In April I managed to get a Temporal Arteritis, whilst at the same time being diagnosed with fibro. Then three weeks ago I get an out of the blue phone call from G.P's. asking if anyone had phoned with my latest blood test results ???

Me: er no ?

Nurse; are you going to the loo a lot ? Are you drinking a lot more.

Me; er yes could be.

Nurse; Right it has been confirmed that you have Type 2 Diabetes !

After this bombshell when I got off the phone I just burst into tears ! Really have had enough now. Please could someone send me a new body...Thank you in anticipation.

  • Wow 😲 all in one go. I have Fibro and type 2 diabetes. Fibro rarely comes on its own. Find the best way for you to deal with diabetes. Diet and exercise, low carb high fat works for me except I don't get to exercise cos my body objects

  • hi there it is a shock when something like that happens, i've been type 2 now for 43 years, and i've just been diagnosed with a brain tumour, i've tried getting a new body from the body shop but they were no good so like me i'll have to keep this one for now, your not on your own my friends your in a massive group take care Alan

  • ✋I am in the club too!

  • hi there i'm like you from the back i look like a bodybuilder but from the front i look like a sleeping policeman if you know what is, but then i started to go on a diet to lose my belly, its not as big but one thing i always say the big is beautiful i'm 6ft 3 in and at the moment i'm 21 stone and still losing weight, this is just some advice hope your confidence can start to rise if you do something about it, that's what i did hope it works for you take care Alan

  • Honey I wish I could! I think there are a few of us that would new ones. Although I finally got this one broken into🤔🤔🤔I just don't think I would want to start from scratch and do it all over again🤔🤔. Then again with all the cool baby stuff now days🙄🙄. Nope I like me and if I had to go through it all over again😳😟😱😱😩😩😩😭😵😲😩😖😣no please don't make me. I think I will just stay me. Going through it once was enough!!!! Wow you can have a conversation with yourself😹😹😹😹😹😹ok I have lost it people I need💤💤💤💤💤💤💤

  • You have my sympathy!! I was diagnosed with fibro quite a few years ago (had it since 2000) but got the diabetes-2 news a couple months ago. I was so bummed!! I already have a restricted diet because of a bunch of food allergies, and even more restrictions seemed like too too much! No, we don't need even more problems, but when was life ever fair? I too eat low-carb and don't pay attention to fat, and also take meds for it. Metformin made me too nauseous, so now I'm on Glypizide. So far so good on that one. I'm trying to cultivate a taste for vegetables, but I've never been a big veggie eater so it's a challenge. I found that olives are a good munchie with very low carbs. Best of luck with this! There is a diabetes forum on this site, although it's not real active. I sincerely feel for you!!

  • BTW good websites are www.bloodsugar101 and www.diabetesdaily. These are US sites since I'm in the US ;-)

  • Hubby has just been diagnosed with Type 2 and I spent a whole day last week at an educational course for people with diabetes. It wasn't easy as we all know with fibro sitting for a whole day on a hard chair with very little opportunity to move meant I paid for it for the next 2 days but felt I had to be there to learn all about it and support him. Hope they have given you some good information. I must say they are excellent in our neck of the woods for help with Diabetes and have a specialist team. They recommend Diabeties UK as a good source of information their nos is 0345 123 2399.

    Hope you will b feeling a bit more positive soon as I know it is bad enough having fibro alone without having to deal with added illnesses. X

  • I am so genuinely sorry to read this my friend, and I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck. Please take care of yourself.

    All my hopes and dreams for you


  • Thank you all so much for your replies. I sound like I am feeling sorry for myself when I read what so many of you are going through! Just had a momentary whinge ! Good luck to all and thank you for being here xx

  • We all need a whinge. I'm absolutely amazed at how many have diabetes along with Fibro.
