I am a 33-year-old religious Jew, married with three children, originally from UK and living in Israel.
Was starting to look a bit on the skinny side before my wedding, during first few months of marriage had major diabetes symptoms but shrugged them off, yet on first visit to in-laws in America was swiftly informed “You’re going to the doctor” almost immediately after passing customs by my mother-in-law.
Have basically been blundering along, injecting and hoping for the best, and recently realized I need to get to grips with managing this. For example, today I ate Quinoa for lunch and realized I have, after four or so years, no idea how to manage my insulin intake.
Looking for advice, help and to forge friendships with other people working with this “chronic disease”.
