Without naming names, I just wanted everyone to know that our community is so very generous. I have receieved numerous gifts of caring from several of you and I just wanted everyone to know. That even with all of our differences, we are one here. Carefully packed boxes have arrived at my home filled with great reading material, test strips, lancets, bags, pedometers, books and even a meter. You all touch my heart in so many ways and your generosity inspires me to pay it forward whenever I can. May I be more like you who share with no expectation or fanfare.
Thank you! You are what makes this site so wonderful.

I spoke with John and he is looking into the leagal issues that could surround the exchange of items that insurance companies have paid for. So for now, we just keep doing what we are doing and meet the needs of others in a one on one capacity. It has worked so far, and we don't want to do anything that would endanger the life of this site. It is far too important to so many of us.

This posts made me think that we need a section for help with supplies, or lancets or reading materials. We could post what we need and if someone has it they could exchange addresses or e mails. What do you all think.?????

I would start the posts Debe, but because I choose to use anonymous most people do not read them or they do not take them seriously. So someone else will need too.

Maybe we could talk to John about setting up a section like a "classified" where we could list things we have to share and things we need? Then it can be current and not lost in the depths of discussions.

I too have received some packages, but the Christmas cards and Thinking of You cards at the time of me being down was amazing to see how many friends I have just here alone on this site. I know if I could help just one friend here on this site, if only with a kind word or a shoulder to lean on I am just a click away…Debe
