Hi, I was diagnosed late Nov and am still in denial. I did try to cut back on carbs (my actual diet isn’t too bad although I am a carb addict) I’m finding it very hard emotionally because it all just feels like too much. I have had brain surgery in 2005 to remove a tumour. I was hours away from dying from the tumour due to its size and positioning. Since then I’ve lost my once very good memory to the point where I can not recall a lot of past events or where I put my phone down two seconds ago! I then had to have a lung biopsy in 2013 to find I’ve got hypersensitivity pneumonitis which has caused pulmonary fibrosis (I’m on oxygen) and this now impacts my ability to go on my much loved long walks. I’ve also been living with depression and anxiety all of my life and now I have T2 and should no longer eat anything I love to eat and can’t go on even a shorter walk because I get bad feet after doing a few miles. I’ve had enough of this and feel unable to cope. My levels are going up instead of down. My GP gave me three months to lose weight and get my BS under control before trying metformin, although he also said I need to go on medication for high cholesterol (apparently my level was fine as a non diabetic but now I’ve diabetes it’s too high) ugh, this truly is all too much. I don’t know what to do…of course I do know what to do…. I just don’t know if I can or if at times (today) I even want to bother trying.
