Diagnosed today...

Hi everyone, hope you’re all well. I’ve been having blood tests for the past couple of months to monitor my blood sugars, and my GP has told me today that I am diabetic. Tbh, it didn’t come as a surprise as I’ve been having a few symptoms for months now. Now its been confirmed though, I don’t know whether to feel relieved or just plain scared.…
In one way its a relief that its been confirmed, as i can now start treatment that will hopefully help with some of the symptoms. My vision has been quite blurry, my skin really itchy, recurrent episodes of thrush in my mouth, excessive thirst and up all night peeing!
The reasons for my being scared is that I have never known anyone else that has been diabetic and have no idea how it affects people's lives etc. Also, as I already suffer from numerous health conditions, (which I already take a lot of medication for) having to take more, with whatever side effects it may come with, makes me feel more fed up with everything.
I really hope I can find a lot of help here and gain as much support as possible.
Take care everyone ❤ x
