I was diagnosed with Type 2 in the last 3 months and I have only just felt comfortable to brave posting here. I have been given a load of leaflets and websites. Things to read and think about and I feel a little lost as I am not sure where to start.
I found out entirely by accident after having a blood test for tiredness and forgetting things, so it came a quite a shock and my initial was to to be very upset and embarrassed about the situation. I have only told my mum, brother and partner as I still feel I that people will see it as self inflicted and judge me ( even if it is !!). So I have been trying to navigate through all the information to decide how best to handle everything.
I was prescribed Metformin which did not agree with me at all so I was changed onto Canagliflozin, though I feel reluctant to take them as I don't really want to be taking medication if I can help it.
So I am looking for some advice and tips about where to start and what to tackle first. I am trying to break it into small bite size chucks. Any help will be gratefully received S x x
