    Good to know what you have can be managed with some life style changes. Strokes don't really give you that option. Anyway, for what its worth I vow to drink a few more Coronas and if, HAMBers would unite, we might completely offset the drop in sales. Just a thought.........Good Luck 3WL
  3. SKITTLES! NOOOOOOOOOOO! Not skittles!!!!! Say it isn't so,Larry! haha!

    I had a scare like that once. Got a really bad chest pain,and freaked out! Turned out,I had pulled a muscle in my chest lifting weights the night before. My wife was going crazy...
    Glad(sort of..) that it wasn't a stroke. Hope everything goes well,Larry.

    Larry i been there done that got the t shirt. Type two diabetes is simply a life style change and things will readjust. My wife lost 85 pounds and she is no longer diebetic so hang in there and glad it wasn't something that isn't as easy to control.

    glad to hear you're alright man...

    diet and exercise can negate the need for medicine. and watch some of them as once you start taking them getting off them can be tough.

    My family has a history of Diabetes. Please take care of yourself. While the self-maintenance is a PITA, its potential degenerative effects can be brutal.

    My uncle refused to accept it, drank beer and kept his Snickers habbit. He was blind in a year, dead in two.

    I haven't read all the posts but a year ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and, being terminally stubborn, my first reaction was 'this is not going to beat me - I am going to beat it'. Tthe doc told me it could be controlled or even reversed with diet and exercise. I went to nutrition classes, changed my eating habits and started exercising. Today I am no longer diabetic, have lost 30 lbs and feel great. I still watch what I eat but it has become second nature. Absolutely go to nutrition classes - it is something everybody should attend - diabetic or not and should be mandatory.

    I happy to hear of your "better" news than what you 1st thought. I don't know ya well enough to be nice so here goes...TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!! It's easy bro, really it is. A 1/2 hr on here is enough to remind any car freak that there's so much to live for. For me, I gave up ALL fast food except the occaisional pizza. I gave up ALL soda pop. Hate it now. Never was a big beer or liquor guy anyways so that was a no-brainer. I avoid all Chinese food too. So much garbage in it I bloat like I'm pregnant so another no-brainer. Fruits and nuts are better for all reasons and you'll look forward to eating healthy in less than a month. You're not "giving up" anything, you're becoming "free" of the things that hurt you. I did what I did to drop 25-30lbs due to a back condition...a fuckin BAD one. My dear departed Dad had that type of diabetes also and as stubborn as he was he got control of it. I drink water, coffee, and green tea. I eat oat bran 3 times a week. I crave the fruit and the tea and I truely feel better for it.

    So, take care of yourself. You don't have to "give up" anything. The option is "giving up" on yourself. The HAMB needs your smart-assed remarks to keep it real. YOU OWE US!!

    Seriously, I'm glad for ya that you can overcome this.

    good to hear that you are going to be allright.

    dad has type 2 also, but he has lost 80# so far and they have dropped over half his meds because of the weight loss.

  23. Glad to hear it's not as bad as it could be. I just got the report from the butt camera and I'm glad to hear that it's ok up there. :p

    I'm sorry to hear about the beer, that's gotta be rough.
  24. Glad to hear you are now on the mend and it was not anything too serious or uncontrollable - take Highlander's and others advice as to your diet as they've done it and it works!

    All the best to you!

    I'm going to repeat what's been said,"Proper Diet and Exercise" are what is best.
