    It does, you know, but it is painful and takes a bit of time. There are many different types of painkillers though and prescriptions are free so yes, eat chocolate.

    I didn't know anyone with diabetes before I was diagnosed so didn't know much about the implications of certain foods. Saying that i wouldn't dream of telling someone what they can and can't eat. Since being diagnosed myself I must say it's really annoying when people make assumptions of what you can and can't eat.

    Eat what you want as long as you're carb counting and adjusting your insulin in relation. People never understand that.
