How long did it take you to get help after you were first diagnosed with diabetes?
I was offered help immediately and I took that help right away to navigate these new waters.
 
I was offered help immediately, but it was some time before I was ready to accept that help.
 
I was in the dark after my diagnosis, but quickly figured out where to go/what to do.
 
I was on my own from the get go. It took me a month or less to get on track.
 
It took me less than 3 months to figure out my next steps.
 
I think it was 3 to 6 months before I knew where to find help.
 
I was on my own for 6 to 9 months before I found help.
 
It was definitely a good 9 months to a year before I had assistance.
 
It's been a year or more since my diagnosis and I'm still feeling all alone in this.
 
I know where to find help. I'm just not ready to get that help yet.
