Hi Welcome to the club? One that I wish I was not a member of. I had a nasty cold that turned in to pneumonia is how I was found out. I was diagnoised in August. Get diabetic classes in and monitor your readings. And keep track of what you eat. But don't dwell on it it is a life style change not a diet.
Most of all enjoy life. Welcome to the new diabetics.

Hi everyone. I got this diagnosis this past Monday (Happy Thanksgiving week). I am still reeling in the aftermath of it. I have a nasty cold, that is what I went to the doctor for in the first place last Friday and did some blood work. They called Friday evening and said I needed to return on Monday.
I am still working on getting the testing right. I have improved since Monday. Those first attempts were a joke, would have been a joke if this wasn't so serious.
My new decision is to get healthy no matter what it takes.
