I got diagnosed type 2 on Monday, and I'm completely lost! It was like a smack in the head, and I'm still asking myself what goes wrong?
I'm 35 yo mom of two wonderful little boys and no one in my family have/had diabetes! I'm 5.1ft and 132lbs, I know that I have to loose some weight but nothing drastic! I try to keep a healthy diet for my family and I never been diagnosed as a pre-diabetic… So what's the problem?!?
I don't know what to do and how to do! My life is upside down and all what my doctor said that I have diabetes type 2 and I have to deal with it. He has put me on 500mg metformin twice a day. He said that I need to change my diet, exercise, loose weight and if I have questions about it there is a lot of websites or I can call him! I felt so bad since my visit, it's like it's my own fault if I have diabetes I can't stop crying because I don't even know where to start. My husband is overwhelmed, he's trying his best to make me feel better but it's just difficult for me!
For my family and for me I don't want to be stuck in this feeling, and I need help to move on and bring my life back on the rails!
