Okay, so Friday was not exactly the Friday I had planned. It started off normal, but then I went to the doctor for my follow up and was fasting as I had been notified that I was going to be doing more blood work. YIPEE!!! (she said cringing at the thought of being a pin cushion again)… So the nurse comes in with a glucometer. Uh-oh. It is not my thyroid. The diagnosis is diabetes. I started crying. Now that I read it, I have almost all of the symptoms. I thought my contacts were just really sucking, but it is also a symptom of diabetes to have blurry vision. I won’t go into all the others. For I will be treated with medication and blood testing on myself daily. This also means serious diet changes. Any tips from anyone who has been / is diabetic? I don’t want to go into Type 1. I want to make these changes NOW so that perhaps I can get out of it before I am too far in.
