it's kind of overwhelming. so much information. i know that knowledge is power so i'm trying to read everything i can; but, i have to remember to slow down and breathe. i think I'm doing what i can for now - i just put my tennis shoes on and i'm going to do a 1 mile walk (restarting exercise after being a couch potato). i have an appointment with a nutritionist on monday and i'm going to start a diabetes education class on jan 19th. i know it's normal to feel confused, scared, overwhelmed - i'm trying to share to release some of this incredible anxiety. i know many many people have this disease and many many people live good lives in spite of it. i keep telling myself I should look at this as a wakeup call to get moving and not let it scare the crud out of me and kick my butt.
