Maybe we should start a diabetic support group?

I hope everyone is happy and living their best life.
In the past month I have been diagnosed with a number of health issues which started with Fibromyalgia.
Wednesday last week I found out that I have Type 2 diabetes along with very high cholesterol and triglycerides, high blood pressure and rheumatoid arthritis. It was like a sucker punch to the gut and a sharp slap to the face. Although I'm being treated as an urgent case by our amazing NHS, I need to get my life and health in order.
While I attend my various appointment in the coming weeks, I wanted, with the blessing of my GP, to get the ball rolling on my healthier lifestyle.
I would absolutely love to make lots of friends within this group that I can hopefully ask the odd question of. In return I will be a source of encouragement, support and, when appropriate, a means of a good giggle.
Thanks for reading my annoyingly long post...sorry
Stay safe and stay well.

Hi. My name is Teri and I am a newly diagnosed T2 diabetic living in Alberta, Canada. Rejoined MFP to track my carb intake and lose all the weight I have put back on. MFP was recommended by my diabetic class 😊 It may take me time to relearn how to use this site again and figure out my macros for carbs but I am looking forward to it and already feel like I am home.
