Just been diagnosed with T2

I am a 33 yr old designer and was recently diagnosed with T2 Diabetes. It was an overwhelming feeling of frustration, anxiety, sadness and many such mixed negative emotions.
And with people talking about how dreadful the disease is and how much problems it causes to you progressively i was like..... no motivation to live a life like this.
But coming here i realized that people have successfully managed it for years with proper dies, exercise and stress free lifestyle. 
So looking forward to educate myself and learning more on it....
