Do you ever get tired of counting everything you eat?

Right now I am so tired of counting carbs and calories and fiber that I could scream. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow morning. I can't eat anything after midnight. I don't overeat because I want to have control of my disease. But, sometimes I just want to scream with the frustration of it all.

I sure can appreciate your frustration. After being a type 1 diabetic for 12 years I have days where I get very tired of it. My treatment plan and insulin doses are based on how many carbs I eat so I am constantly reading nutrition facts and counting carbs. Add to that a finger stick before and after every meal or snack.what gets me the most frustrated is those days when I'm doing everything right and yet getting whacky test results...that really gets me down. But, really hang in there your eyes,legs,kidneys and life are worth it. I wish you the best of luck.
