Thank You All For This Site, I had just found out 4weeks ago I'm a type2 diabetic. It is all a shock to me have no family history of diabetes. Been reading as much as I can, this site seemed to catch my eye more then anyother. I have learned alot in just the day that I have been reading all posts. So I decided to join, hope you all can share info with me in the future! This site has already put a big smile on my face.

Welcome! A new diagnosis can be a little shocking or overwhelming but hang in there, you'll get the hang of it and do just fine.. :)

Hope you continue to find the site useful and informative. You can learn a lot here from others dealing with all the things that diabetes entails. There are good recommendations to other helpful sites, as well as books, recipes, etc. Makes it so much less daunting when you realize that others are dealing with your same issues, and that having diabetes is NOT the end of the world. Good luck!

I'm glad you are here! I found this site a little over a week ago and I've learned a lot that I did not know. I've been a diabetic for 5 years now. Cara
