So, this morning (as of July 19th), I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. I'm a 19 year old college kid whose parents are in the military. Diabetes, as I only learned an hour ago, runs in my family, but hasn't cropped up in 3 generations (yay me...). When the doctor told me, I almost was about to brush it off, but then I remembered a family friend who was going through it, and how difficult it has been for her. The doctor hasn't given me any medicine to take yet. Right now, until I get my call back from the doctor, I'm kinda sitting in this grey-bleh zone of uncertainty, yet knowing sorta what to do, and still being in a state of shock and denial.
If anyone can give me some basic tips until the doc has pulled me back into her office, that'd be great.
P.S. I love to cook, so if there are any great cookbooks out there, to make the meals a bit more enjoyable, that would also be a real life saver.
Over and out.
