Today's Doctor Visit
Today I finally saw my doctor - first time since October. He's very busy and if you cancel an appointment, you wait 3 months for another. I was honest about my numbers, and told him of my frustrations and confusion. I have read so much, and much of it conflicts what I was told in the beginning. We decided to start over - make like I was just diagnosed today. I probably have more diet books than the local library - cookbooks and all. But the book that seemed to help me the most in the beginning was a book that my girls got from the diabetic nurse at the health care company they work for. So as of today, I am chucking all the books except that one and one that lists all the exchanges for brand-name foods. And it's back to the beginning.
