Hello all-

My name is Monica and I was diagnosed with diabetes type 2 a week ago. There were some symptoms (fatigue and dry mouth) and I asked my doctor to run blood work. My number was 491 and it seemed to come out of nowhere. While I am not happy to have this diagnosis, it is forcing me to adjust how I've been doing things. I am a foodie kind of girl and have a sweet tooth.

Now I've started watching what and how much I eat, cutting out the sugar, etc. Making myself get out of the house and go for a walk is another thing. It's easy to stay glued to my desk working. Dealing with the finger pricks and insulin shots aren't bad but the challenge is coming up with different meals. While I like food, there's a list of items I don't and won't eat. LOL!

Thank you for the add and hope to find a lot of resourceful information that I can use.
