I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing.....

Published by thefoos in the blog thefoos's blog. Views: 545

So,

I am finding this quite hard to grasp, mainly because my lack of knowledge but also because I'm not taking it seriously enough, and I know I'm not. It's not to say that I don't think Diabetes is serious, I know it is, but I can't seem to pull myself together. I had Gestational Diabetes in 2012 through my 1st pregnancy, and it went away after I had my son. I had it again in 2015 with my 2nd pregnancy, and initially it went away but I was diagnosed with Type 2 in March this year, and I am gutted. Instead of taking this news and giving myself a good kick up the bum, I've instead turned to food.

I really, really want to do better. I have 2 small children, and I need to set a better example.

I would love to hear from anyone who's been in a similar circumstance, I do need help and educating about Diabetes. I have, of course, seen my nurse but I feel she just patronises me and I can't listen to her.
