I am not a person who likes to be told what to do or how to do it. The thought of a schedule gives me hives. And failing – I’d much rather succeed.

I learned that I had Type 2 about seven years ago. I was stunned. My former doctor had warned that I could develop Cushings Syndrome because of all the prednisone I took for my asthma, but he’d never mentioned Type 2.

So there I was: Asthmatic, Cushings, Type 2, and still on prednisone.

And here I am: Asthmatic, a bit of Cushings, Type 2, and still on prednisone.

I thought the Type 2 would take care of itself once I took care of the prednisone. Even at the best of times, this has not been so. I get to keep the Type 2, and with it, structure and best practices and a scenario in which failing is not an option.

This year I’m taking on Type 2. I’m either going to conquer it or make peace with it. But, I’m going to be real about it along the way. The glitzy commercials with the background music are fine, but to attain that happy place takes a whole lot of determination and plain hard work. If you’re in a similar position, I’d love some company along the way!
