I am NOT grateful for any aspect of T2...I am concerned about the peripheral nerve damage and kidney damage caused by T2

I'm not sure being grateful is the correct term, because at the end of the day diabetes controls us and we have to do everything right with food and exercise, that way we can manage it. For me it's not gratitude, but I follow the rules so as to control it but deep down I know it could complicate In so many ways the future, all being said I'm grateful to be alive and still doing great 🤩

Grateful? Seriously? Maybe I'm bitter, but I can find nothing about a cureless disease for which to be grateful. Worried about? Well, you name it. Vision problems, liver disease, cardiac disease, kidney damage, nerve damage, skin problems, can't eat hardly anything anymore, have to worry about every single bite that goes into your mouth, making aging even worse, ignorant people BLAMING me because it's T2, and I could go on. This diagnosis has made a very harsh life even worse. 😞
