I just saw my a1c's yesterday and I was in a state of shock-- I've been an anorexic/bulimic for the past year and a half, ever since I lost weight and got my blood sugar down from having been pre-diabetic before. I'm trying to figure out where I went wrong this time-- my diet hasn't really changed from the a1c's I got done in November (which were fine), I'm still even taking diet pills and my portions are very small. Since the only thing that DID change was my exercise frequency, I think it must be that. I was told at the ED clinic I go to that I needed to lay off the exercise due to my exercise addiction. But I think that pushed me back into pre-diabetes. I am still confused-- I mean it took me becoming 240 lbs. to reach pre-diabetic stage before, although I will admit I am not sure I had been prescribed bloodwork for it before 2013. I just don't understand how it could have come back so readily, within a few months of me not exercising a lot. Was I sensitized to becoming pre-diabetic after my first experience? I honestly don't know whether or not it runs in my family, if it does it runs in my dad's maternal side, and they knew nothing of their medical predispositions. Anyway, genetic or not, it still is up to me to figure out what took it out of remission. Does anyone have any ideas? I plan to start exercising 30 minutes 5 days a week (or thereabouts, I have been doing two 60-minute classes each week for the past few weeks, and I just spent a weekend skiing). But I am still trying to figure out what the cause is. Does anyone know if pre-diabetes can be cured with lifestyle changes? Or is it always there but just in remission? I am just confused as hell and am trying to get to the bottom of where I went wrong... and where I was steered wrong by that nutritionist. I called the clinic and demanded to speak to her. I told the receptionist what had happened and she said the nutritionist would call me back. She didn't yesterday. Should I call again? Maybe she was all booked up, maybe she is avoiding me. I just don't know... I don't know about anything anymore or who I can trust.

Why is it only this last 2 weeks that I’m really struggling with the lockdown? I’ve been out walking & cycling, only shopped when necessary, kept in touch with family & friends & even been lucky enough to socialise with the neighbours from our own properties due to us living in a cul-du-sac.

I post here a lot. Things seem to be deteriorating for me. It is getting more difficult for me to function and do regular day to day things.

I need some stability and support in my life that I can count on. Everything seems to be falling apart and...
