Hi**** Been "struggling" for 53 years now. Though it seems tough at times, when I look back, others have much worse problems than us diabetics. Just keep your chin up and push through, learn what you can about your disease, and you can live a fairly"normal" life.

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Community support is the best place for tips and tricks.

As for exercise, try this, start out with a small goal every few days. For instance, I started walking around a small block in my neighborhood. Then after a few days of that, I started going for longer walks. Cycling is also great fun.
