A Letter to the Newly Diagnosed
What you need to know when first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes
By Wil Dubois
Welcome to the family! What? I'm the first to say that to you? Well, now that you've been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you're part of a HUGE family, and more people than you can imagine are facing the exact same challenges you are. In fact, more than 5,000 Americans were diagnosed with diabetes on the very same day you were. And the same thing is happening today. And 5,000 more will join us tomorrow.
Did you know that being given a diagnosis of diabetes delivers the same level of shock to your system as having a heart attack? Yeah it's a BIG deal. Everything just changed. You've now got a disease that never goes away, requires a lot of attention, and gets worse on its own no matter how hard you try.

It's OK to be a little bummed. (visit link below to read the rest of this article)
