Thanks for asking dLife.
Managing diabetes can be very challenging, especially when support is not readily available.
First, do you have an individualized meal and exercise plan? If not, talk with a registered dietitian about establishing one that matches your lifestyle and preferences.
Second, what would motivate you to get back and stay on track with a diabetes management program? Did you feel better and have more energy when you were able to maintain better blood glucose control?
Asking dLife indicates to me that you wish to get off the cycle. What changes are you able and willing to make to extend that blood glucose control from one month to two months and even longer?
In addition to learning more about managing diabetes, a diabetes educator can direct you to a diabetes support group in your community. A medical social worker can help you connect with other people with diabetes. These folks have experienced similar challenges and remained fierce in their determination to manage their disease. We all can learn from each other.
