Hi, I'm Gabby
Easter Sunday of 2008 I did a meter test on myself. A shocking 301 glared at me on the screen, and that was before any chocolate bunnies! Type 2 diabetes runs in all of my immediate family. So it was no stranger to me. Seeing the 301 was a shock, though not totally unexpected. I panicked at first. Then I got down to business.
Overwhelmed and uninsured, I began my life changes one small step at a time. One of the greatest supports I found was right here at Diabetic Connect. This site helped me more than any other single entity in my search for what to do to gain better control of my diabetes. My doctor can attest to that!
Here, people share their experiences, advice, compassion and sometimes a gentle nudge that makes me feel I have an ally, not a judge. That is exactly what I needed. I still do.
So gather around our kitchen table, enjoy a cup of coffee, and share your stories with us. We will laugh with you, cry with you, and above all, be here for you. Come on in, a seat is waiting.
