Welcome to SP! I think you will find plenty of people who get it here!
I also developed Type 2 about 2 years after having gestational diabetes and was caregiver to both of my parents for years.
The nutritional tracker on here is the best I've found. I set my own guidelines for how much carbs/protein/fat etc. It takes time to enter in all the foods you eat and save them, but once you have a good base built up it makes balancing your meals a breeze, and it's easy to go back and look to see what food is the culprit if your blood sugar is high.
I've found for me that daily exercise is key to keeping me off insulin, even if I'm not losing.
SP has taught me that I need to take care of myself just as well as I take care of my family and friends. Sad to have to learn that lesson in my 40's but I'm working on it!
