Oh, and don't just read posts, join in anytime and anywhere. You don't have to be officially friends to be friends here on DC.

This site has awesome support … its almost as supportive as my bra!!!

I'm with James, find people who seem a "fit" to you and ask to be their friend through their profiles. You will find some awesome friends that will inspire you, I know I have. And yes please do NOT limit yourself to just one type of friend, we are like ice cream here, very colorful in many different flavors =)

*Hugs* Cheryl

You've just given me the most enjoyable belly laugh ever! I'm laughing so hard I'm about to fall out of my chair & am having trouble typing - regarding the "bra" thingy. However, being serious once in a row … you gave good advice.
Tony5657 in New Braunfels, TX maybe not "ice cream" material LOL

I like mine with nuts!!!

most of the marshmallows in rocky road I've seen are hard and oblong. not fluffy and messy. Only when the ice cream melts do they get a bit soft.

That's true if you limit yourself to store bought rocky road. But if you just add regular marshmallow, fresh never frozen, to your chocolate ice cream, we are just softies. Gotta choose your own nuts too, they aren't stale and don't get soggy when the ice cream starts to melt. Nope, home mixed rocky road is always the best.

I guess I am just too lazy and don't really care about things having to be quality. As long as I can eat 'em! good enough for me!

Ah, but Grasshopper, in the metaphor of rocky road is life, you are choosy about your nuts and marshmallows.

Now if we are talking about real ice cream..then only the best for me…I ain't wasting my carb allowance on crap.

I agree totally, sNerTs1. I'm still laughing and laughter is good, it's a healer. Thanks for all these comments, healing, stress relieving comments (sort of). More than giggling, I'm doing the belly laugh thing.

Now I am craving my favorite ice cream, Cherry Garcia. I have none and if I eat one bite I cannot stop on that ice cream, will eat the whole little pint, so keep it out of my house lol. :)

Do they havae it in those tiny tubs that are about the size of yogurt containers. I have drooled over a few put don't remember if Cherry Garcia was in them. My favorite was mixing Cherry Garcia with either Phish or the brownies ones, been banished from my freezer so long I forget their names. However I still walk very slowly down the ice cream aisle every so often and join in "dreams of ice cream"

jayabee52 2013-04-12 17:23:37 -0500 Report

actually they do have cherry garcia in teeny tiny tubs. (even smaller than yogurt containers) I found mine in walmart. And ate it on the way home!

BellaJ1977 2013-04-13 20:31:29 -0500 Report

Ok going to Walmart one of these days to find me a teeny tiny tub of cherry garcia for a treat one day :). Thank you for letting us know jayabee :).

IKR … if you ever met me James, you will see that I am about the least serious person you will run into *unless its serious stuff*. I dance through life every single day whether it looks bad or not LOL. No … there are no pics of that ~ at least not like there will be of Gabby twirling on a mountain top LOL.

if you see a person you'd like to friend don't wait for the suggestor to suggest them, just click on that person's screen name or icon and that will bring up their profile. When their profile is up then there is a link to add friend next to the profile pic and click it. there will be a drop down box which will have two choices "friend" or "follow". Choose the friend and another popup will come up asking you to send the request to that selected person. Click the "send request" and then wait for them to respond. Then you can email them should you wish.

(the above is for computer access only. If you are accessing via smartphone app, you are on your own there)

May I suggest you may not want to limit friends to type 2s You can learn a lot from all PWDs and their support people.

Praying for success for your gathering of friends here!

New "connections" will apear on your profile page and on the right side of the site's pages. You click on any of those to send friend requests. Also I think you can do a search for members of the site and list Type 2 as a search criteria. Happy hunting!
