    I was diagnosed with Diabetes four years ago after my knee replacements. This passed year I was treated for BC.the worst part about it is trying to cut your carbs and sugar. It is manageable so don't get depressed. Stay calm and remember to take things one day at a time.

    It is hard to deal with multiple health problems. Eating junk or comfort foods would be a natural reaction. In the long run, getting on a healthy eating plan, like a Mediterranian or Pink Ribbon diet might help both health problems.

      Thanks Joan, My docs are hopefully that that post menopausal fibroids or polyps usually not cancer and very common especially with tamoxifen. But better safe than sorry eRly detection is key, staying positive.

    Sorry to hear. Diabetes can be controlled through diet, exercise and/or medicine. It is not a death sentence. 29 million in the US are living with diabetes. Follow your doctor's orders, and you'll be fine. Pray and gain the strength and will power to fight this like any other disease or illness.

    Look let's be honest so long it is a temporary slump you can cope. get serious about change and the long list might just get better or down to a few things. I wish you every success in coping. Sometimes we all need a bag of guilt food. Best

    Take care Paula. I was diagnosed several years ago with pre Diabetes but they've never gone and called it full blown Diabetes. In fact the year I was found to have breast cancer my PCP changed my diagnosis from pre Diabetes to fasting hyperglycemia. From what I've read it's the same thing just a different name. I do keep an eye on it and they always order an A1c test along with lots of other things. I asked my PCP last fall if I should buy a glucose monitor and test it every morning and she said no.
