I am wait listed for a Diabetic Clinic for newly diagnosed diabetics, but unfortunately, the next class is in March. My Dr said this is totally unacceptable and is trying to find other nearby hospitals that I can get in faster. Being a Canadian, we have a great medical system, and the 5 hour class and dietician is absolutely free. I just have to get in
Tomorrow, I'll be on the phone trying to find a support group that I can go to. Family and friends just can't grasp why I been such a mess and so sad since diagnosed last week. "After all, its only diabetes, not the big C". HAH! So I really need to talk to people that have gone thru this, it maybe my turning point.
As with Jeannie, I am glad I found this site. I've read lots of information in past posts, and the members that have replied to me are just wonderful
