Hi hun.Type 2
I have received the most supportive welcome, and good tips and advice such as eating 30 minutes after my insulin injection using body lotion on my feet every night which has helped bundles, support whereas so many members made me feel welcome and I felt like I had fitted into a slot that was waiting for me, comfortable and could relax and start to find my self again where there is no prejudice, Things were going really well and I started to gain self confidence again to the point of ringing the hospital and wanting answers as to when and who was looking after me, regarding my Diabetes, my Endocrinologist appt might be, My next Liver Appt, Also could someone help me with my vision as it has decreased drastically, and through the most supportive members on here they gave me the courage also, So to all those thank you so much,
Then there was one member that hounded me wanting my levels of this and that what forms of insulin I was on all they wanted was the levels & numbers no help no support I felt and seemed liked they wanted to catch me out or something, I have only just received the letter from the hospital with all my test results done for the 1st time and a copy of a letter sent from my consultant to my GP, as I had mentioned I literally was a newbie threw this persons tone, I knew this person was,nt a very nice person at all, like they were questioning everything about me and even had the ordascity (sorry about spelling) to tell me something only a consultant,chemist,pharmacist,GP, would have have agreed to giving me since a child, that it was wrong not two people are the same also the dosage depends on the person and the conditions they have, which unfortunately they had to change and increase due to my distressing conditions that I am still coming to terms with,
but there is NOT absoluteley. NO compassion,NO support,NO respect of hurting someones feelings as I feel like this person would attack you in a heartbeat, and I cannot be apart of that I am already trying so hard to climb my way back up again and negative people like that has kept me away while I was to afraid to come back on here when things started to go wrong or even if I was to say hello to anyone that they would appear out of the wood work wanting answers again putting me back into a black hole, sorry to tell both sides that I have been involved in the really terrific side and by 1 person they can sway you away, I am a newbie am sorry if I have spoken out of line.
would someone be so kind as to tell me what LCHF diet stands for sorry am nieve
Hugs and love for a better tomorrow for you all

thanks so much have replied
thank you for your understanding, I really think this site is terrific I would even go as far to say fantastic, with lots of good honest people who can give good advice I would much rather getting advice from others who have the same condition although we are all individuals and different in our own ways, friendship support and compassion for one another made through, as diabetes can be so lonely if your the only person that has it, apart from a uncle who I dont see and unfortunately has already lost 4 toes he also is type 2, I gather that good and warmth and fun side of this great site has come from others as once they too was a newbie standing in our shoes, I would much rather that self experience and as well as the tears of of despair also comes tears from laughter also,
I do have a sense of humour believe it or not as I used to be a uefa b license football coach and being on the course with 23 professional and semi professional men. Some from abroad and I was the only woman lol so you got to give as good as you get in a "mans" environment I was a football coach for England and also for charlton athletic when they was in the premiere ship thats when I had the accident when the Cross bar came down on my spine pinning me to the floor it also punctured my lumbar canal causing my piturity gland to fill up with lots of tiny tumors and instantly had piturity failure which you know, is a major factor in all aspects of your body, and was bed bound for months,
little did I know The worst was yet to come, Thats the first time I have spoken openly about myself and what I was as my life had changed in a matter of seconds,but at least i can get around in a wheelchair now, theres people out there a lot worse of then me.
I find that a lot of people come on here because they're struggling to adhere to advice number 2 and advice 1 is becoming inadequate through not being adequately assisted by the people suggested in advice 3! Advice 4 I can't fault however!
It is good advice in an ideal world with ideal medical practitioners however.
