My name is Sean and I was diagnosed with diabetes last Tuesday. I am certain I went through the multiple stages of grief several times in several hours. I am rather hung up on the anger stage right now. But I am working on it.
I had a full week before my sit down with my doctor so naturally I researched the internet (because the internet knows everything). I am feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information out there, and underwhelmed by the specificity of it. I am not afraid of this learning curve, just a little overwhelmed by it at the moment.
I plan to manage my diabetes with a sound combination of clean eating and strength training (liberally coated with bouts of cardio). I will take my medication as long as necessary but hope to improve my health to the point I no longer require it.
I am joining here in hopes of learning from people activately and successfully dealing with their diabetes right now.
