well, the results are in… been diagnosed with diabetes

not exactly how I was imagining spending the next stage of my life…

I guess I should be happy that it hadn’t come on earlier in my life, as many of my elders dealt with the disease…

had been once to the doctor, and was semi-prepared for what I heard yesterday… already been cutting back on sugar, but I hadn’t even thought about having to stick myself with a needle 3 times every day…

been having a bit of a pity party but hoping to be over that in a few days…

good news is that I should be able to deal with this by watching my diet and getting more exercise…

a friend is diabetic and is a walking dictionary on the disease… another has a partner with it, and she knows tons as well… my daughter is on Weight Watchers and is sharing food information… so there’s lots of help for me as I move forward, learning as I go…

sad about the chocolate though…
