I was just dignoised last week and was told to take my sugar in the AM, take meds AM/PM and avoid sugar. I have been reading so much that my brain is mush. I'm so confused about carbs/fruit/switches. I have cut out sugar almost completely. Watching my carbs closely and walking. I have gained 8 pounds in 2 weeks even though anything I eat goes right through me. I also have colitis and what I avoid for that condition is what I need to eat for T2D. I'm hungry, bitchy, unhappy and have no energy.
Can someone please talk to me? Resources in our town are limited. I would so appreciate someone to talk to.
My dad and both brothers are diabetic. My son died at 19 for T1D and I should know this stuff. And though I understand the physiology, the mental and emotional affects/isolation are getting me down. I just want to feel good again. I have holidays around the corner and need to be together for them.
Anyone have time to help?
