I would just like to warn that I've heard that many dieticians follow the ADA guidelines for meal planning, which includes more carbs than some of us can handle. (For some new diabetics, that might be a reduction, which is helpful, but for those who were keeping their carbs down to begin with, it has the opposite result.)

Still, dieticians can help you understand where the carbs are and how/when to spread them out. You can use the recommendations as a starting point. When your levels stabilize, if they've stabilized high, as mine did, you can adjust carbs to see if that helps.

At first I felt the same and didn't want to tell anyone, hated the injections and testing.
After a few weeks and doing some research I started feeling better. A friend died of leukaemia and a client got bad cancer. I sat back and realised I was in the process of dying before I was diagnosed and now with a little help from meds, a lot of research and friends, forum and medical support I plan to live long enough to be a naughty old man. Lol ok I might already be part of the way there.
Seriously out of all the things you could get this is not a bad one if you just treat and respect it properly.

Nothing to be ashamed of. Life could have dealt you a worse blow than this. Something to be thankful for really. Hang in there, you're not alone. My best advice to you, is to treat your diabetes with the respect it deserves, don't take it lightly. People around you need to know you have it, you just never know when you'll need their help. It could be a matter of life and death, and they need to know what to do to help you. ((hugs))

Due to current financial restraints the light at the end of the tunnel will be shut off till further notice.
