So I just found out a few months ago I have type 2 diabeties, on top of the hypertension I already have, so what happens now? I am on metformin and I was taking insulin but my body rejected it. So that saying that when it rains it pours is very true, I also lost my temp job that ended sooner than it was supposed to, so now I cannot pay my bills or go to my doctors visits. I am able to check my levels (until my strips run out), which are all over the place, because I cannot afford to buy the higher priced fat free, suger free, diet foods I should be eating. I went to a food bank last week, they were very helpful except you are not allowed to choose your food, you take what they give you. I was very appreciative because that meant my daughter would have something to eat but there was not much food that was diabetic friendly. so what happens now? I gotta eat! so do I just eat what I can get my hands on? will I get really sick from eating the wrong foods all the time? and whats up with the feet? what do I need to look for or know about diabetes and ones feet? please help! I am overwelmed and frustrated.
