I understand what you mean, its a lot to take on board all at once...
With reference to your diet/food plans the nurse or the DSN that talks with you, not 'ALL'
are with the same negative mindset a lot have been trained with - some 'have' changed gradually
understanding 'MORE' about the diet/food plans "really" needed to assist us.
Getting our BG's to on target safe levels.
Lets hope you get one that is prepared to" listen " to your own points and needs!
Its too easy to get given the negative impression that ALL are the same when they are 'not' ...
Some are listening and changing thankfully!
As you make your own mind up with what you choose to do with an everyday routine to
self manage your own diabetes , you will learn as you go along.
A bit at a time - each day makes more sense etc...
We all do this as it is very much an individual journey to each person.
Being unique and individual even my own DSN spouts this one now!!!!
Try and see it as an individual thing you're unique she quips at me...
When we are talking about my own meds/insulin therapy and foods to eat plans.
Think I taught it to her .... or else its only 'me' she says it to?
To keep me sweet when I see her.
As I have insisted this mantra chant to her for the last 2years!
