So much to take in all at once.

I just want to encourage you to take it one day at a time. It is a lit to learn and it isn't going to happen over night. I agree with everyone's comments especially to educate yourself and establish good communication with your doctor and a good diabetes educator. Keep on keepin' on. And this is a great place to help you do that. :-)

You are in a great place here. We really are just like you. We all had that day of diagnosis and some of us laughed it off, others cried, some got down to business and others ignored. But we all dealt with the overwhelming part of it.

I did it here the best. Everyone reached out to me, helped me. I asked a million questions and I learned so much. The best part was that I don't feel judged here. I can express my feelings and people here get it.

We are here for you, too.

It is overwhelming…just take it one day at a time. I am not an expert…just another diabetic who has been where you are right now. I was diagnosed in January and I have found the best way to help yourself is educate, educate, educate…you are the only one who can do this and you are worth it!

The group of people on here have a wealth of information to share. Just read different discussions, ask questions and develop a good relationship with your doctor. Good Luck!

yes it is. you have the right attitude. Welcome to DC! I accepted your friend request. sometimes I got weeks without getting on here. Trying to catch up but probably will have to come back later when I have more time. Good luck.

You are absolutely right. There is a lot to take in at once.

We've all been there. And we understand the feelings you're going through. But hang in there. You can definitely do this! Each day you'll learn a little more. Soon enough you'll have your feet under you and it will come much easier to you.

And the best thing you can do is ask for help. There are many here who can help you figure out the day-to-day stuff. You've found this great place with good supportive friends.

Hang in there!
