Diabetes & High cholesterol

So according to my doctor at the clinic, I am officially diabetic and have high cholesterol. I am a little skeptical on the diabetes diagnosis since Wikipedia says something different (if it’s on the Internet it must be true, right?). Anyway, appointment in two weeks to discuss it. Not sure how I’m going to give up sugar and fat. The truth is, they are as much of my depression treatment as my group and the drugs I take. Splenda sucks in coffee; maybe if I do a Splenda/sugar mix to dilute it and get used to it first. Def going to have to give up the pastries though. Not sure about the exercise though; can’t afford the gym or taking a class anywhere. Hopefully the commute exercise is enough.
