i really need some help and support
i have been diabetic for a long time now about 14 years
and i was diagnosed with type 2
i was on diet only at first
then i went on to tablets
i was told that it was safe to conceive on tablets but once pregnant to go onto insulin
with child 1 i went on to 2 injections and after my daughter went back on to tablets
then when i had child no 2 i had to go onto 4 injections and still havnt come off
the problem is im in a vicious cycle
insulin makes you hungry and put on weight so now iv put on tons of weight and therefore need more insulin
i really would like to start trying for no 3 but my specialist has told me i have to loose at least 21 pounds before its safe to try
iv never found it so difficult to loose weight
i cant even keep to a diet for 1 day!!!!!!!
also my sugar levels are all over the place
i forget to test them and go weeks without testing them
and then i go hours without eating and forget to eat
i just find life so hectic that i dont have time for myself
now because my sugars are so high
im feeling very tired and keep getting abseses its terrible i look like iv had chicken pocks
im sure iv done alot of damage to my body
im so scared
i find being frum very difficut with diabetise with eating late shabbos and yomtov
and 3 and 4 course meals
i dont want to eat different to everyone else
i get very down that i have to inject
and often forget and end up doing it after a meal
i find when we go to someone for shabbos i dont know how much to inject if i dont know what food there serving. and sometimes have gone hypo straight after lunch!!!!!!!!!
i find the only way i can keep my sugars in control is to test them 12 times a day which is crazy when you havea family!!!!
i really need some help from someone that understands

Hello mom of 2 girls. I hope Hashem sends you quick recovery soon.
Here's what I suggest. There are a lot of people who have recovered from diabetes and other illnesses through natural means. Try to search for their stories on the internet, many of them now councel other people.
The only way to really heal is to change one's lifestyle to a healthy one. A healthy diet is the most important thing (yes, there's just no other way). By the way, it's really not as hard as it seems - many people keep very healthy diets and enjoy every moment of it and don't feel at all limited - after all, they're doing a great favour to their bodies, something everyone ought to do, wether healthy or not. I suggest reed 4th perek of Hilchot Deot of the Rambam and 32nd perek of Kitzur Shulchan Aruch where they speak of the importance of a healthy lifestyle. It's very very unfortunate that these halachos are often unheard of even in frum circels. (Not everything they wrote may apply today as nature may have changed, but the general principles definitelly do apply - all natural therapists today say the same things that the Rambam wrote.)
I understand it's very difficult for you to change your lifestyle and especially go on a diet. It still can be done with proper guidance. I suggest try to find a good natural therapist who can help. I know some who live in Israel, I don't know where you live.
Again, the only way healing can be accomplished is through taking care of our bodies the way Hashem intended to. If we don't do that - no wonder they break. It can still be fixed though - there's never such a thing as lost hope (Rabbi Nachman, and all other tzaddikim and sages).
May you have complete healing.

hi motherof2, I really feel with you, since I have a lot of times the same problem as you. I have such a hectic life, children, household and job, that I sometimes let my sugar slip to the craziest point. But I want to tell you, I am expecting my third any day, and I have made up my mind, that at least for one year I am stopping to work so I could get my life and my sugar under control again. I already started feeling a difference in my sugar levels. Maybe some times we just need a break to get things going again straight.
I wish you lots of hatzlocho further.
