You're in the right place for help and support. Yes, things will get easier .. IF you are willing to make a few changes in your lifestyle. Diabetes can do a lot of damage to your body but you are lucky to have it discovered so early in your life. Now you can start heading off some of the bad effects before they get started. Are you Type I or Type II?
Your diet will have to change (no regular sodas ... sugar-free are OK) if you want to see improvements in your health but its not all that hard to do. A lot of us around here follow a low-carb diet -- no starches, sugars, grains, pasta, potatoes ... basically Nothing white except cauliflower, cottagge cheese & eggs. This really helps control your blood sugar. Some of us are successfully using diet and exercise to controll the disease without medication.
Have a gander at a few old messages from the past few weeks/months. They'll give you a sense of what gets discussed around here. Its a great place with great advice and great people!
(Did I mention it was great? ;-)
