I find it difficult at times. I hope things get better soon for everyone.

I know times are hard now for just about everyone on the planet. More importantly, people I have known either on social media and in my own personal life. The world is changing and not always for the best. After finding out recently that my wife has a heart problem and is pre-diabetic I have to focus more on looking after her well being. It is difficult at times, but I really do hope that all of you will understand if for some reason I am not on myLot quite as often. I will do my best to make the best of a bad situation and be there for her. If not for just the emotional support but simply out of love for her. God bless everyone and maybe tomorrow will be a brighter day for all of us. I hope that will be the case. One can only hope and pray for better days ahead.

We are both concerned enough to change our eating habits and I threw away the rest of the chocolate and pumpkin pies from Thanksgiving. We went and bought Smart Balance Margarine as we had been eating pure butter for the past several years instead of light spread.
Buy Smart Balance Buttery Spread, 15 oz at Walmart.com

@lookatdesktop I'm actually back to butter since my salt restriction. I buy unsalted which actually has no sodium at all. It doesn't taste as good as salted butter, or even margarine for that matter...but I am looking for other ways to spruce things up.

@porwest Butter is a flavor all it's own but I have to cut back on my cholesterol so I am currently enjoying the unusually good flavor, in my opinion of SMART BALANCE margarine.

Anthony I am here if I can be of any help! I had an aorta valve replacement 8 years ago and have been a pre diabetic for 2 years. The doctor will probably put her on Metformin for the diabetes and there really shouldn't be too much of a change in her/your lifestyle!

My prayers for you both. A lot of people forget that a spouse’s illness is difficult for everyone in the family.

It is good to hear these kind words. And it is best that she had gone to find out before it was too late to do anything about it.
