Struggling! Wow! You  really don't want me to get into it!

Let me go diabetes.....

I have type 2 diabetes
I have had diabetes for about 5 years now.
Is it under control you ask? Not really? But I am trying!
When I had blood work done back  in October 2012 my A1C was 13, Yup that is HIGH!!
I never really watched my diet, well I did off and on.
Jan. 1,2013 I did start a diet. That helped.
When I had blood work done this month my A1C was 8, Which is down but my new doctor doesn't realize that so it's high to him. A1C should be below 6.
I was doing good diet and exercising till I had the stroke, now fight to get back into it.
Now back in October my sugar was running 300 or over, Yes that is very high.
Now it runs anywhere from 94 to 227 the highest.
The doctor is considering putting me on insulin.
Working in a nursing home in the past for 15 years I know how to give shots. But the thought of giving myself a shot, I don't think I can do it and I know my husband couldn't give me one.
Before the doctor puts me on insulin he said he wants me to lose 5 pounds before I see him the next time which is the first week of July.
Go to Diabetic Classes
I don't want to go but I have to. Doctors orders! I know what I have to do, I just have to do it!
I have three classes 2-Two Hour long and the 3 rd class is One Hour long. My first class is tomorrow evening.
Diabetes is a struggle for a lot of people, I know it's hard for me.
Now, It's time for my workout!
