Hi kk! Don't apologize for venting! I'm glad that someone responded. We have similar problems, I don't have diabetes (yet), but I have two herniated discs in my neck and my low back is all messed up now and my hips. I'm struggling with my weight also. I'm sorry for your issues, I know how it changes your life.
I wish I had some grandchildren! You're lucky. A lot of people on here, in their 40s and 50s, only, have grandchildren. My son is 21, so it's too early, but I would so LOVE to have grandchildren one day (if I make it that long). Some days I feel like I will not live very long. There's a history of very early heart attacks in my family also.
Take care, have a good day.
