Like "I have seen posts like this so much.lately, and I feel for you. I am not the newly diagnosed diabetic, my husband is, and I have encourage him every day;like this site encourages its users, Maybe you need someone in your life to help support you in this very hard endeavor; And you know what I have learned, is that my husband has done well with intakes and levels; to let him have a small treat, if he wishes, It is not going to kill him; just have to be aware to have a plan, and try not to break it; Whatever works for you, may not work for others' but don't give up; There is always sometime you deserve a reward, even if it isn't food. Refocus, and stay with us."
