Couldn't have done it without u, Ray. I think we just needed a nudge, from what i see.
Thanks again,

Cari… I have met (virtually) some of the nicest people on each board that I have joined lately. There is so much to teach and learn from each other. Support is truly beneficial for the mind, body and soul. Would I really have made the changes had I not been diagnosed as diabetic? Probably not. It was more of a joke to down 6-8 ice cream sandwiches in a sitting but look at me now. I am not fanatical about my new lifestyle but having taken baby steps to control has paid off. These connect groups have changed my life and I must thank each of you for the education, inspiration, and motivation. I am without question a new person full of love, life and positive attitudes.

Ray, I am so glad that u have made the friends and the changes that u have. These groups r a life saver. I don't get involved alot but i read every thing and reply to many. I am so happy for the support that i get here as i no longer have any family left here in the states, except a son who definately has his own life,so i cherish the support from those on DC and the other sites that i am involved in.
Ur attitude is amazing.
Hopefully we will have as many people on the other sites as we do here on DC.
Baby Steps.

I have also been making the rounds to the associated affiliates on the Social Networking for Health Conditions umbrella. Although I am running out of illnesses to learn and teach about I am running into some new and old friends, reading and sharing product reviews, suggesting and learning about books, exchanging new recipes and always available to help others in any way that I can with genuine friendship and concern. Thumbs up to Ms Cari Lee for the cross promotion to let our conditions and affiliate sites be recognized. The new areas which I have joined include hearing loss, COPD, sleep disorders and obesity connect. Let's connect!!!

I am an "immigrant" there. I am getting used to using it now. Actually we have many sites and if you ever want to check them out just pass your cursor over the top right bar on this page and click on "Visit Another Site" There are a lot of people out there waiting to hear from you.
