Tell us more about you (optional)
I'm single, disabled and live alone. My brother is my last living relative and last week was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.
I feel a bit helpless to offer him more help right now.
We count on each other for support and this is a tough diagnosis to process. Unlike cancer or other diseases that can be aggressively treated/cured, this although can be treated, is for life. It's overwhelming and has been my greatest concern regarding his well being.
He's strong, but has had a really hard year and I'm hoping he can cope well enough to not give up.
So, it's my hope to find information that I can pass along, as well as continue to educate myself and my family regarding this disease.
Because I have a background in cooking (degree in culinary arts), I'm hoping that I can do something tangible to help him. But we need to be educated.
He's going to receive education and support though his healthcare plan, but I am not.
I'm here by referral. A dear friend has been here for years and and invited me to join as soon as they heard the news.
I'm glad you're here!
Thanks in advance for all you're doing!
