So, I'm a non-diabetic mom of a type 1 son, and I'm loving the support, humor, and intelligence of the people on this site. But I've develop a new fear: whatever will I do if I develop type 2? I feel I could NEVER confess that on this site. I mean, I catch myself having derisive thoughts about type 2s, so I'm not fussing at anybody for what they think or say. But I'm 42, my dad was dx t2 at 40, my mom was dx t2 at 60, and my only sibling (I just learned) was dx t2 at 43. I'm overweight, although not obese, at least according to my wiiFit ;-). I'm not accepting it as inevitable. Injuries have held me back this year (in the past year I've torn each achilles tendon AND spiral fractured my big toe), but I hope to start back dancing in just a few weeks, so please send weight loss vibes my way. Oh, I think I need good balance vibes, too.
