Knowing is Power...And Now I Know

I finally attended the diabetic education class today. It was an all day event (8:30-4:00). I learned alot, some was good news, some was bad.

- I can actually eat moderation....but I can eat it! I have been eating less than 15 carbs per meal, but was told today that I can have 45 per meal. HALLELUJAH!

- There are lots of great medication options.

- I'm not alone, there are support options.

- I can eat some of my favorite things at Christmas dinner.

- Knowledge is power...and now I have knowledge.

- With lots of hard work I can prevent/prolong having serious complications.


- This is not reversible. I will always have diabetes, and will always have to monitor my blood glucose.

- There are lots of serious possible complications.

- Treatment, and living this new healthy lifestyle will take lots of planning and creativity to keep cost down and to be successful.
