Like "I was diagnosed on 4-13-10, I am still a little overwhelmed but I went to diabetes.org & found everything I was looking for, especially about food, tips on eating out, carb counting, foods that are good for you, foods that are bad for you, plate portioning, etc. they explain it so its easy to understand. I hope it will help you & answer any of your questions! Also, don't ever own THE diabetes, meaning, don't ever say MY diabetes, its not yours, you don't want it, do what you can to rid yourself of it. Not sure of your religion or if you are religious or spiritual, but whatever you believe in, it will help you through, be patient, take it one day at a time, be strong & best of luck! =o)"
