Oh, Lori my heart goes out to you. 
First...Check resale shops like Goodwill and Salvation Army to replenish your cookbook collection.  Often local Libraries have sales that are put on to raise money for new books and other needs for the library, that is a great place to find cookbooks as well. 

Can your doctor refer you to a Dietitian that can get you started with some good ideas and meal plans? I would think that a consultation would be covered by insurance. 

As for recipes I wish I had some to share. I bet I would be a lot better off myself if I were to follow a good diet plan!  
The only one I do have and this was given to me by a friend.  She got the recipe when her daughter was diagnosed with Diabetes.  I think this is also a Weight Watchers recipe. 
Cake. 
Any flavor cake box cake mix. 
1 Can diet soda, flavor to go with the cake. 
Mix can of soda with cake mix.
Pour into pan and bake as directed. 
NO oil...NO eggs...NO water needed. Just the cake mix and soda. 
I have made this and I find it a bit "crumbly" so I make it in a Bundt pan and rather than frosting a light glaze or just a dusting of sugar or cocoa powder. 

Another recipe given to me.

Angel Food Cake. 
1 Box angel food cake mix, It MUST be the kind that is in 1 bag NOT the 2 bag box mix.
1 Can crushed pineapple in juice. 
Mix Angel food Cake mix with pineapple and juice. 
Pour into tube pan and bake as directed on box. 
When this was served to me it was served with Cool Whip. Very light and refreshing. 
I do hope others contribute some recipes that will help you out.

Lori,  I have a book by Bob Greene ( he used to be on Oprah) that has many recipes for diabetics.  This is one sounded interesting.
Baked Cinnamon Apple
2 Tb. ground walnuts
1/4 tsp honey
Tiny squirt of fresh lemon juice
Large pinch of ground cinnamon
1/2 small apple, cored

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the walnuts, honey, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Fill in the spot where the core was with the walnut mixture.
Place the apple on a baking dish and bake for 20 min.  Serve warm or at room temperature.

Hope that helps, I will continue to look for recipes for you, but you might also try the Splenda web site, as they have many diabetic friendly recipes.

I was just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes earlier this year. Salads do get a bit tiresome and cooking for 1 isn't the easiest to do, and that includes making my own salads. One idea I've made at work is for each of us to bring one or two items and there's a weekly farmers market where we could pick up some fresh ingredients. Then we could make our own salad bar.
