Okay, I haven't gotten my test results back to know if I have Type II Diabetes or MS. Very likely Diabetes since I just had my first kid and they say that makes you susceptible, but also because I'm 5'4 and 230 lbs. So I was really at risk anyway. I'm having nerve pain in my hands and feet called neuropathy? I guess this is a huge signal for Diabetes. The nerve damage won't ever go away. I just don't know how I can handle another diagnosis for a "manageable" disease. What I'm saying is--there is no "Magic" cure for type II diabetes. It is diet, exercise, taking some medication for the nerve pain and for the insulin stuff and that is it. It is about testing yourself, knowing your limits, managing your symptoms. So is FMS. I AM depressed about this and who wouldn't be. I mean, how many times can I hear this? "You have a syndrome you have to manage the rest of your life?" This one could be deadly if not treated properly which definitely gives me the motivation, but it also makes me even more depressed. Now, instead of having another child, I have to wait until I lose a LOT more weight. But I have to find activities that I can do sitting down because of the neuropathy. How do you deal when you have more than just FMS (as if that ISN'T enough!)

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
