End to dev­as­ta­tion

Diabetic Living - - Your Thoughts -

I’m a re­cently di­ag­nosed 19-year -old di­a­betic. When I re­ceived the news that I was di­a­betic, I was dev­as­tated. I thought this was the end and that I would have to live on a diet of ve­g­ies and salad just to steer clear of any­thing and ev­ery­thing with sugar, so when my part­ner gave me my first Di­a­betic Liv­ing magazine, I was ec­static to find out I could eat pretty much the same foods that I used to eat (with slight vari­a­tions, of course). Now, I’m work­ing on los­ing weight and keep­ing my blood su­gars rel­a­tively low, and I couldn’t have done it with­out the help of my friends, fam­ily and of course DL.
