****If for some reason this can't be posted here I'm sorry****
When I found out I had type 2 D,and went to a 3 day course to learn about it(it was more like 2 1/2 days)..was not much help at all..did any of you have to do this ? And did it help you?
I am in Canada..in Quebec,Where everything is French..I'm not! anyways the people who taught the 3 day course did try but explaining things were hard for them at times not saying the right words..then with what I call the( language Police) this woman kept correcting the words the Dietitian & nurse were pronouncing wrong..needless to say I didn't get much out of the 3 days..ect..ect..ect..then to find out on the last day something they talked about to us we all misunderstood what she had said..so I sat there being numb and feeling depressed…
I did explain to the Dietitian & nurse at times it takes me a longer then most to soak things in..due to 2 Traumatic brain injuries,with being in a coma for the first one at the age of 15.(my doctors know about this not sure if they did)
I was also born with brain abnormalities…so here I sit… it's been one of those days no matter how much I read up on diabetes ,I'm feeling so LOST..helpless..did any of you feel this way..or do feel this way from time to time?
Thanks for listening!
