I just found out I have type 2 diabetes. It's only been 4 days since I found out and I'm still in shock. It should not be a surprise since my whole family has it. But it is. I thought I was going to faint when I got the call, in the middle of the stores no less.
Of course I went and looked up everything on the internet. I am getting very scared and shut down. I'm anxious and panicky. Or I my body and mind say go to sleep.
I'm still trying to figure out what to eat. Obviously no more sugar. I'm so confused about Carbs though. I just don't know anymore.

Just having a real shitty year.

Thanks :) It's just so scary right now. Just reading everything that can go wrong. I mean my brother woke up blind and his eyes bleeding. ( note he wasn't taking good care of himself at the time).
I do think I need to make an app. w/doctors. Thought I could handle on my own.

I don't have to inject, I don't have to check my blood...yet. I was put on medication for now. Yeah what's with the feet?

I'm so sorry to hear about your health problems but I don't think you should be anxious and panicky. Nowadays, you can find products that you still can eat safely and enjoy, you know. ;)

Recently, I've found out that I have intolerance to gluten, so I know exactly what you feel. Hang on there, my dear. *hugs*

Thanks for the hugs. I'm slowly getting the hang of what to eat. What not to eat. So far I find I'm not missing anything yet. The holidays are coming so that's going to be a big test. I usually bake about 300 hundred cookies and brownies to give out. Not sure I want to do it this year.
Sorry to hear about you're intolerance to gluten. My cousin found out she has it too. Thinking back, it's no wonder why she always had stomach aches and felt sick when we were kids. To bad it took so long to find out. But than you didn't really hear about back than.
