I took the rest of the day off to contemplate my next step.But anyways hope everyone is having a good day. I will ttyl!
Praying for you Dawg. Pretty much everyone over 40 in my family has it. I check mine once a week and so far so good. I know it's just a matter of time though.
Do they want to start you on a pill? It works pretty good if you stick to the diet. Just be warned that you may need to stay close to a bathroom the first couple of days that you take it. If you don't mind taking supplements, 2 cinnamon pills a day really seems to help keep it under control.
