I know many of us deal with multiple health issues and our other Connect Communities are growing. Thanks to many of you who participate in more than one community and bring the same family feel here on DC to others.

Today I was looking there and found that you can suggest a new community if one that you need is not available.

Take a moment to see if we are offering all the support you need. If not, let the staff know and they will look into starting a new community to meet your needs.

Now remember, make your suggestions on the link I provided in the post. Don't just mention it here, actually go and make your suggestion so that those who can make it for you can know what is important to you.

I don't know if it would be feasible, but how about one for stroke victims and supporters. I was one of the lucky ones 2 1/2 years ago when I had one and it was very mild and I suffer no lasting effects that we can find. It has been a wake up call for me to really do something so that I can see my grandchildren grow up.

good idea. i have made a suggestion for hypothriod and i'm glad they made that page so people like me can get together and support each either on this issue.having hypothyriod is just as hard to deal with as diabetes . nice to have support on these issues.

I have already found that link and have suggested a "Kidney Connect". I would ask everyone who has kidneys to suggest a kidney connect. People with diabetes often have trouble with their kidneys as a complication.

I probably need to ask again because it has been quite a while since I have done so. I might even be willing to serve as a Patient Advocate in KC.
