Small changes first. Then you can sit back and re-evaluate.

first of all take a deep breath. You are dealing with a disease that can be controlled YOU can controll it. It doesn't control you. Do you have to make adjustments..........yes.............this will give you an opportunity to learn how to eat healthy and eat like everyone else. Can you do it of course. You don't have to give up cooking. I love to cook and cook every night I just look for recipes that are more diabetic inspired and make those for us. It is good for the entire family not just me. I don't single myself out and become the victim. Can my family eat more carbs than me. Of course and they do I just have to watch my intact and measure my blood counts. Don't overthink this and let this overwhelm you. Use this as an opportunity to learn and become healthy. It isn't the end of the world and don't give up cooking. You are able to succeed if you want to succeed.

MY Dr has been watching my fasting blood sugar for about 6 to eight months now. I Have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabies.
The funny thing g is is that I am a cook by trade. I have trained myself to go without food In order to plot out a meal... ery ad habit....very hard to train. I AM SERIOUSLY considering doing another trade. So I am at a crossroad afraid to give up what I know and start all over again.
this makes me more depressed and custrated. Yet I know I have to take action and start changing my current hours are 530 am to 2pm or 10 am to 7 pm and wen I am working g at sea I can work from 0530 to 7 pm. So I am totally wondering if my career is worth it?I don't even know ow where to start, what do I change, how can I change.....just overwhelmed.

I Can do this I know I can.
