I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in 2007 about 3 months after I had surgery for ovarian cancer. I was actually quite devastated; just couldn't believe there was something else wrong now! I was doing really well exercising, diet, etc., and my A1C was down to 6. Now I have had alot of stressful situations in my life; loss of job, living with an alcoholic, etc. Because of the loss of my job I'm unable to test, or take proper care of myself with doctor's visits, etc. My diet has been bad because when I stress, I tend to eat...and I have been eating "snacks". I've been told that it's okay to eat foods with sugar, as long as you watch your carbs. To be honest with you, I'm actually quite confused about alot of things regarding diabetes. I never actually got proper counseling because my insurance didn't cover it. I didn't realize what an emotional roller-coaster it could cause.
