Hi Everyone,

I know it has been quit some time since I posted here but a lot has been going on in my life.
The last post I made was about being very tired. Well I told my doctor about it and he gave me a new med. Since then I met a man in another Diabetic forum and we started to email. The longer we talked the less tired I became. I was in a 22 year long situation with someone who was just a friend. We shared an apartment but that was all. We had separate bedrooms and different sleeping hours. I think I was becoming very depressed and bored. The person I was with was very volatile and abusive at times.

On July 19th I had had enough of the abusive relationship and took up the offer of my new friend to come and stay with him. It was a big decision to take only what I could carry and move from my home in Canada to his farm in Ohio. It has now been awhile and I must tell you I have never been happier.

I have lost a total of 65 pounds so far. I am no longer tired all the time. My last check up was very good. My fasting test was 4.4 and my average Hb1ac was 6.5. All the test came back normal.

I got to have a Christmas tree for the first time in 26 years. He gave me a Diamond ring for Christmas. I am looking forward to Spring when we will start planting again. It is a lot of hard work living on a farm but it is definitely worth it.

I don't know what the future will hold but I do know that if I can spend the rest of my life with this man on his farm I will be very happy and content.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas and will have a very healthy and happy New Year.

Ohhhh...What a wonderful story! Does he have a brother with a farm?????? What a great place to escape to after an abusive relationship. I too escaped, but to the struggles of single motherhood (3 kids; 1, 3, and 10) and continually looking over my shoulder, as the driver of an armored car my ex had a gun. Sigh...That was 18 years ago and it's still a struggle! He's harmless now but I still have scars.

Oh please tell me more! It is SO, SO nice to hear good news these days. We need GOOD NEWS in these hard times. do you sit on the porchswing watching the sunset and "hawks makin' lazy circles in the sky." Oh, do tell, do tell! I'm totally serious by the way, not being sarcastic. Help me fill the void that Chocolate Cake left. sniff sniff!!!
Sugar was my comforter, my I need to find other distractions from the current woes. Please distract me. (No, I'm not crazy)
