I just wanted to vent a bit as I was recently diagnosed and am putting a brave face on to protect my kids and they are letting me get away with it by not acting all that concerned. Heck this is a pattern with us since I was initially injured 11 yrs ago. Mom's smiling so it must not be that bad.
I know what to eat and what not to eat. That is a start. But I live on social security and food budget is strained now by the different foods I have to eat. I don't often cook because I have nerve pain (not related to diabetes). So I have to mostly prepared but healthy food. So it is close to the end of the month now. Ug!
I haven't received my meter or supplies yet except the metaformin. So stuff is going on inside me, I am unaware of it and it does scare me very much and I cannot talk about it to my adult kids. And they don't want to hear it I think. I does concern them as they could eventually get it.
I think I will be reassured when I get my meter and supplies and can test what is going on when I eat or don't eat, exercise or not.
I have a feeling I am not alone with my worries and that is why I joined.
Thanks for listening to my rant.
