Jazzy, this is a very difficult and confusing time for you and I'm sure it's hard to understand what's going on. You need to talk to your doctor about all of this and have some nutrition counseling. There may be a support group in your area, too. Here where I live, two hospitals have group meetings for diabetics and they don't cost anything to attend. Don't stop the medication you were given and follow the meal plan they should have given you. Daily exercise, like just walking, is also important. How about your family? Do you live with them? How old are you?
I'm sure others will be around soon to answer your questions here on the forum. Until that time, try to learn as much as you can about diabetes and also read back through the topics on this forum.
