It IS scary, especially at first... but this is a great bunch of people, and if you just keep coming here and reading and participating, the team can teach you what you need to know. I like the suggestion of a diabetic educator. Most insurances will pay for that and/or a dietician... and most hospitals sponsor free classes if you can't manage that.
Follow the suggestions about drinking the water and exercising...Use the nutrition and fitness trackers here, and stay active, and you're going to be amazed at what you can do for yourself!
Welcome to the team! Kathy
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
