Like "It takes a while for this to become the "new normal "in your life. But it will.. In many way I am lucky. I was born with diabetic. I know nothing else but this life style. I also feel that I have a great life and really enjoy every moment. We have the power to control diabetic! No other "disease" allows for that kind of control. I really know that you will overcome this and begin feeling that this is just the new normal in life. There will be a point that you will reach when you really won't give it much thought when you have to control your diet and take your meds or insulin. It's ok to enjoy that burger and fries once and a while. Just know your carb to insulin ratio and follow it. Life's great and I'm glad I have had the opportunity to share my thoughts with you!"
