Hi my name is Lynda and I was told I was Diabetic in 2008, I am now 42 . When I first found out about this I was so overwhelmed I had no clue what this was about. I ended up just ignoring it my doctor put me on metformin and I just assumed that took care of it. now a couple years later and a son who is 9 and who seems to be gaining weight . I went to my doctor and she tried to explain everything to me but still confused I am going to be attending this diiabetes class. When I was at the doctors I mentioned to my docter about my son and that not only am I diabetic so is his father and that he seems to be gaining weight , she told me she wants to see him so he has an appointment next week and she told me that he has a big chance he will be diabetic to . This scared me and made me realize I need to get this undercontrol because I don't want him finding out later and having to learn about like I did , so my intentions are to learn how to cook healthy for us. I have no clue how to do this I am the type of person who likes to use the microwave alot, I told my doctor that she didn't seem to happy about that she said that needs to stop but this is how I grew up. Anyway I am sure this sounds like I am just blabbing so i will end this , would love some advice suggestions.
