Like "I understand your reaction to your diagnosis. In time, you'll more than likely adjust, and accept it as just another part of life. It's really a matter of educating ones self on the subject. One must be more diligent with what and how they eat, plus do a bit of exercise. It is a bit tricky to decipher the best and most accurate info with all that is available. Managing diabetes successfully is well within reach for most of us. With the exception of better eating habits, and a bit more exercise, diabetes has not caused me to change my life. I do what I have always enjoyed doing. I believe there is a strong possibility that you will experience similar circumstances if you choose to. Just keep in mind, diabetes can be managed successfully, even if your having a difficult time doing so."
