Well, here I am- the latest addition to the growing crowd of diabetics in the world. Right now it’s like a big door has been slammed in my face, I can eat almost nothing in my house now and I wonder if I can have any of my daughter’s 1st birthday cake next month.
Right now it’s hard to just get over the fear of food, I’ve been hungry for days. Even worse, I had nothing but vegetables and a little hummus for dinner and I can’t stop drinking water. It’s worse now than when I ate what I wanted, which I just can’t reconcile.
So tomorrow begins the lifelong regimen, with the needles and the drugs and the log books as my new companions. Hopefully it becomes automatic soon, right now it’s a bit overwhelming. Not looking forward to it, but this is the roll of the genetic dice that I’ve landed and griping won’t help me do what needs to get done.
