    Why is it that the things we like always end up being bad for us?

    Glad to hear you are ok man...Like you I have grown up on these forums. Please continue to monitor your health and avoid sugary things. Natural sugars like fruits are okay but youll learn they pack alot of sugar too...but still a smoothie is better then soda. I also think you should avoid any sweetners as they are just as bad for coffee.

    Time to bring broccoli and celery to the tailgate fellas!

    Also beers are hard to consume as they are packed with sugars and so bad for us...Sadly the Jets cause alot of us to drink our misery away.

    Jersey born and bred bro! Maybe i will get you some history books that were not written from a pro American perspective. Or i could just have you speak to some of my professors. If thats too much just listen to Public Enemy, Bob Marley, or read the last speeches of MLK before your uncle murdered him.
    And by the way...that goat would come in handy if you give me those 40 acres and a mule you still owe me.

    You dont live my life. Your grand parents didnt drink out of Negro only water fountains. My great grandparents witnessed/experienced things you may not even be aware of.

    U know this thread is quite important to those who have the disease.I'm sure U R aware that the disease strikes both races equally it does make choice between the races. How ever it appears U R turning this thread into a racial thread which was not the intent of the maker of the thread. I suggest U contact the mod & start a new thread concerning racial problems in this country & have the mod made a sticky for that subject as well

    U didnt read what i was replying to. Someone made an insensitive, ignorant comment and then said he was only kidding. What a B.S. excuse used by so many racists when theyre called out!

    Dude I feel you. I am type 2 I found out after working a 80+ week then doing a software deployment over seas then flying home for oral surgery and felt like crap. I went to the er after going for blood work and not feeling better. My blood sugar was over 600 (stress related and turns out it is hereditary). Turns out in talking with my parents every male member of my father's family is a type 2 diabetic.
    While scary I did change the way I live, I drink less (quit smoking a few yrs before) eat better.

    I'm very happy to hear you've got your illness under control and sharing your experience. I know what it's like to be told you have a potentially deadly disease. In my case it was cancer, but I've been cancer free for many years thanks to state-of-the-art medical care I received. It is also the reason I advocate that everyone in this great country should have access to high quality medical care.

    I've been very busy as of late but i wanted to thank you all for these posts. Means a lot and very appreciative of the information and knowledge that's been shared throughout this thread. I'm doing awesome and feel better than ever. Every morning my blood sugar is between 122-133. I workout doing cardio exercises for 45 minutes M-F after work and have completely changed the ways i eat & eliminated those sugars and high carbs. I also go for a late night swim with my wife and daughter before bed (the perks of living in Florida lol). Thnx you all this thread has been good for me to read through.
