    Hey all, so I was recently diagnosed with Type 2 in November and I have no idea what to do.
    Of course I know sugary foods or snacks is not the way but I've recently have nearly given up all hope.
    I'm on 500mg medication.
    I'm in my gap year.
    I have hardly any "real friends ", just go to the gym and to work 2 days a week.
    I hang out with my cousins but that seems all it.
    I have constant and damaging headaches which are horrible especially when your feeling so down and helpless.
    These headaches occur on and off.
    I try ignore it but recently started acknowledging it.
    I'm not asking for sympathy or pity. I'm just looking for someone to talk to without having to feel guilty about what I'm going through.
