Can anyone bring out positives in being a diabetic?

I was just told i was a diabetic new years eve (happy new year!) type 2 after being really thirsty for about a month i got tested. I took it extremely hard and was emotionally crippled for about a week. i am 26 and always played sports and worked outside. the past two years i worked a swing shift and sat inside and let my diet go. However, since 2 weeks ago the doctor cut back my meds a lot and my sugar hasn t gone over 125 since the first week i found out and often drops low. the point is, is it fair to say that if a person diets, exercises, keeps stress as low as possible keeping the sugar down then one shouldn t dwell about the effects that are associated with diabetes? or is this being to optimistic. i think with all the questions raised about it we need some positive positives are the daily incentive, to eat right, and exercise which leads to looking good and feeling good

Exactly right, if you eat well, exercise good , try to cut down the extra fat deposits and this shall automatically brings the sugar under control and there by keeps the diabetic complications on the heart and other organs away. This is the way to fair better being diabetic. One should know Diabetes is not a disease if the blood sugar is under control.
