Like "I als feel like a lot was left out. I was diagnosed on October 13, 2009. I was shocked! Now I'm just scared and feel like there isn't anything I can eat. I am struggling with my weight also and need to loose about 25 pounds. I am stck eating veggies and very little meat, No pasta, potatoes, chips, crackers, no white flour at all. Sometimes it is frustrating. I guess that is why I joined Diabetic Connect. These people really seam to know thier stuff, and what they don't know they will give you a referal of where to look. Frustration is my name right now. So I am with you... also not sure where to start..."
