Hey Tricia,
Sorry it took me so long to say "Hi" and welcome you to the community. Could not get rid of my out of town company…LOL
I'm sure with all the support you are going to have here, that you will be very succesful in managing your Diabetes.
Oh, and the weight loss thing…do it for your health, not the love life thing…LOL Any man should be proud to be with you as you are. If they aren't, then they are not worth having.

Hi Tricia:

I'm not only new to this site, I'm new to all types of sites like this. I need a friend who understands and one who can encourage me. I live in rural West Virginia.

Hey Spockgirl…

My brother pretty much gave me the best advice…its kinds blunt, but true…take care of yourself and follow the rules or you will start loosing body parts (toes, fingers, etc..) one by one…It would be a long, slow painful death that I do not want. I follow a diet and exercise the best I can. I never thought I would be able to give up Dr. Pepper ( used to drink around 8 a day)..but when I got the news, I have not touched one (not even diet ones) in over a year. Its hard, but you can do it and I will be here for anything you need!!

Hello Tricia,

We have a couple of things in common. I'm new too and I was diagnosed about the same time as you. Mine was diagnosed on March 25, 2007, just two days before my 45th birthday. Happy Birthday to me!!! ;~p Anyway, just wanted to say hello and hope to get to know you better. Take care.

Welcome, Tricia. We're glad to have you on the site.

When were you diagnosed?

Hey John-

I was diagnosed on April 30, 2007 with a fasting blood sugar of 132. I am lucky because my brother was diagnosed about 5 years before me with a reading of 500. Its kind of wierd because before me and him, nobody else in our family has diabetes

Well, does that mean I should wish you a Happy Anniversary today? :-P We should develop some etiquette rules for diabetes :-)

Coincidently, today is my wedding anniversary—17 years. Time flies when you're having fun.
