Discovering you have diabetes mellitus is like seeing a mountain in front of you that you have to climb. It’s not an easy task and just the diagnosis is tough to take.
Until there is a cure, this will be a life long event.
But, it may not be as devastating a diagnosis as you think.
What are we talking about, you ask? Your blood sugar is screaming through the roof. The doctor wants you to lose 20 pounds and you can’t eat all the cool stuff you want.
Everything you read about diabetes is either bad news or written in medical code that sounds a lot like gibberish. I You have a handful of pills you have to take now, and your fingers hurt from all the new blood sugar testing .
It’s hard to be told that it’s not the end of the world when it sure feels like it.
