We are here, so vent away. I am sorry that you are going thru so much so early in it all. I am sure he is frustrated as well. It is rough in the beginning, trying to learn and figure out things. I know if it had not been for this site, I would have gone nuts when I was first diagnosed. It will get easier, really...I know it doesn't look like it, but it will. We are thinking of you both.

It takes time. Its hard at first with so much coming at you.
Have you and your husband met with a diabetic educator,
an R.D. or any other members of a diabetes care team?
It takes time to regulate Rx, food, and exercise plans. It will
all come together. Be supportive of each other as you are.
You will learn together. There are great videos,news, and
discussions. The book Club lists a great many books that can be of assistance. Keep coming back to this site and reading,
watching and sharing. We are here for you.
