Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
Having been away and off-line for a long weekend and tired when I returned home, I just listened to your Voyage of the Rainbow. It's lovely. Well done!

Type 2 is what I have. I started on one pill daily and followed all the directions for exercise and diet, but my meds were increased to two pills daily and eventually to three. I felt like a failure. At the same time I was angry at my body because I knew I was doing everything I was supposed to do but apparently getting worse in spite of my changes. I thought, "Why am I even bothering to do all this if I am getting worse, not better?" However, I kept at it and eventually my condition improved. Much later I read an article that said that doctors often start patients on a low dose because they don't want to over-medicate. Then they increase the meds if needed. If that happens to you, be assured that this is common in the treatment of people who are newly diagnosed.

And while I was away, I kept your family and those of other 'Catters in my prayers.
