And it is official....

Per the nurse, my doctor has "coded" my file - I have Type 2 Diabetes.

True to nature, have purchased two more books on Amazon (gotta love that Amazon Prime!).  I am meeting with my personal Diabetes Nurse/Educator this Saturday at Breadco.

And I have to get my numbers down to avoid going on meds.

So....off to get my numbers down.

Yes, I am diabetic. No, it is not because I ate too much sugar. #diabetes

Just in case anyone is confused...


  1. Hi Paula, thanks for your comment on my blog. I hope what I have to say helps you. I'm sorry about your diagnosis but it sounds like you will deal with this in a good way. You mentioned buying books and I wanted to recommend one to you: The First Year Type 2 Diabetes. An essential guide to the newly diagnosed. by Gretchen Becker. Excellent book. Good luck!

    1. I saw this on Amazon - going to check on it, too. My other obsession is books.

  2. I wish I had something profound and comforting to say, but I don't. I know you will tackle this. Love you. Belle

    1. Those with the checklists always prevail. I should get that printed up on something.

  3. Well, shoot!
    I know that must be a disappointment to you, to hear.
    I know you will tackle it wisely and well.

  4. Paula,

    Praying for you. Different matter, I have lost almost 25 pounds through Weight Watchers and they do provide a lot of help. I do not want to have a heart attack as I am becoming my husband's caregiver. Actually I call myself a lovegiver. I am the best person to take care of him and I do not want to not be able to do that.
