So I was recently diagnosed with diabetes Type II; as one aspect of metabolic syndrome.
On Wednesday, I met with the diabetes nurse for the first time and it did not go well. In fact, I left feeling depressed, discouraged, and resentful. I also got the impression that I was there not to start on a plan to control the diabetes but as a box-ticking exercise for her.
She gave me no actionable information beyond "lose weight" and even then, she made a lot of assumptions about me and my lifestyle.
I've already lost over a stone - but now I'm feeling a bit like I'm as well just making do on my own rather than going back to her for any sort of "care". Anyone else have a similar experience? What did you do?
