As a diabetes vindicate I do need to do my part for us all. We all have ti mes wen we must say no to someone who is trying to forrce us to eat something we know will not be good for us. ' Mine came a few years back when a care giver insisted I take this plate of a large pancake swimming in syrup and butter I tried to explain to her I had diabetes and should not e at that. She insisted so I gave in bad idea Two hours later my blood sugar was 525 and I was in an ambulance I arrived at the ER in a coma and I ;;luckily survived but the doctor told me I almost died. Do learn from my experience and do not take chances as you might lose,Life is precious so be careful. One original post and graphic by P Hatley copyrighted 2017

@Hatley Kraft and other companies make their millions by hawking stuff that can be eaten but really should be be counted as food. Its just play junk that actually makes humans balloon up and get ill down the road.

@sallypup ......Can't stand Kraft. Has an after taste. True enough. I like fast food and would much rather eat that than Kraft. I do know what you are saying but I can't seem to stop with the hamburgers, chinese food, etc.

How can a caregiver force you to eat? And as a caregiver shouldn't she of been aware of your diabetes?

My grandma and my mother-in-law are diabetics. I think it is not easy for them. They have shots everyday. And they can't have many food and that's not easy. Resisting the delicious food really needs the determination.

That caregiver needed a smack. I've been saying no since last June. I am not great at doc visits so I don't know if I have diabetes. I just know that saying no makes me a healthier camper.

Very high blood sugar hats but you lived because you are made of tough stuff and strong. Even so I am careful to eat properly. They try to get me to eat greasy things and I have never been able to tolerate them ever. Doctor says there is nothing wrong with me except that my system is smart and says no to that kind of stuff. Glad you had that Doctor that day to help you out and survive. I know it can be very serious. A girl on a program through stress shot her blood sugar to 700 and something but she did not know that she was Diabetic. She survived too and takes it easy not like she did before.

@Hatley Mine is good too. Don´t get me wrong I am the first one to love the smell of all that kind of Food cooking but after comes the should not have done. I was really ill one day and when they told me what they had put in all of that it made me much worse. I don´t know how they manage to eat some things but they do.
