Thanks for your response. The discouragement is understandable. This is something quite unexpected, isn't it?
Are you currently seeing an endocrinologist? They are best specialists to help you with diabetes management. Have you been offered the services of a nutrition counselor or a diabetes support group? These can be very helpful in the adjustment of a new lifestyle.
Once again, I urge you to give yourself time to adjust to this "new normal" and realize that a lifelong lifestyle pattern takes a while to adjust to. Read all that you can about diabetes, subscribe to websites that can help you understand this disorder. Also, very important is to find an exercise plan that you can enjoy.
Here is a website for the American Diabetes Association, http://www.diabetes.org/. You will find some good information here as well as support for your new lifestyle.
Keep in touch, Chris. I look forward to hearing from you again.
