I was only diagnosed a month ago even though I suspected something was up long before it was made official. I have diabetics in the family so I wasn't really surprised but I am finding my own journey much harder than I expected it to be. I want to cry because I feel like I have had two lives: the old one where I could eat what I wanted within reason and this new one where I feel deprived all the time. I am mourning being able to eat without panicking about carb counts. I want a small Blizzard or Molten Cake Sundae so bad I can taste them but they would be more than my entire daily limit of carbs! This is so overwhelming, like I am never going to feel 'normal' again. Is this 'mental' withdrawal?
