Howdy Crystina and welcome to DC! I pray I'll see more of you in the discussions, because that IMHO is really where the "action" is on DC. Please accept my friend request.

Welcome to the community!

I hope that you enjoy the site. There are a lot of both types here and getting to know people is a huge help in working through some of our own questions and feelings.

I am a type 2 and have been for almost 5 years now. Wow, how time flies. I was really scared in the beginning and needed a lot of information and support because I didn't have a doctor. Everyone here helped me so much to feel like I could do something about my diabetes. They helped me find my voice in the fight.

I have a love hate relationship with my diabetes. I think most of us do. But it has improved my health and well being far more than it has done anthing to hold me back. There are days when I really get mad about having it, but when I look at the weight I have lost, the overall better health and eating habits I have, I can't stay mad too long.

There is a great discussion going on what we like and hate about diabetes here:
