I haven't been here in this community for quite some time, so many of you may not know who I am, not that you should, but if any one has been reading any of the older postings, discussion or have been looking at some of the videos, then you may have seen my name…Mays!

Well I'm back and I would like to say "Hello" to every member of this wonderful family, both old and new, this is such a wonderful, helpful site that I couldn't stay away for long. Here's to many more discussions and community interaction in the future!

Welcome Back Mays I also have been off site for awhile will be gone all next month but am taking my Lap Top with me to stay in touch with all of my friends on here.

Welcome back Mays, I missed you. Peace and love to you my friend.

Just Joyce, peace and love to you also my friend, I have thought of you many times, especially whenever I would see someone in need knowing that you have helped many people. I hope that all is well and I pray that you are blessed because you have blessed others as only an angel can!…I am looking forward to having many discussions with you!

Thank you dear. I have been doing pretty good. We have a 6 month old puppy I named Riley. He keeps me going and is such a little angel. I hope he doesn't think he can still sit on my lap when he gets to 60lbs…lol

I am still busy with the community and last year I was appointed to our Civilian Review Board. It was an honor being sworn in by the Mayor. I can't wait for our discussions.

Alan, it's great hearing from you, as always, and it's good being back, I'm looking forward to hearing how many softball trophies you and your team have won, not to mention "will" win in the future!

Hey Mays, welcome back to our lil' home away from home! Sometimes various things also take me away from this site but I'm like the cat my family tried to get rid of years ago, he kept returning to us! LOL And for the past several weeks I've been busy making repairs on our 6 rentals. The latest, my least favorite task, involved slithering on my belly like an ol' snake (crawling under a pier & beam house) to fix a loose floor board. While under there I enjoyed "spider thumping." I catch one on his/her web & see how far I can thump him with my finger. LOL

Seriously, I just want to say that I've always enjoyed your comments and discussions & you've helped me many times. I'm very happy for your "resurrection" here!!! :o) Tony5657 in New Braunfels, TX

MAYS 2014-05-06 21:22:11 -0500 Report

Tony5657, it's great being home here at DC, I have enjoyed both your comments as well as your discussions and I am looking forward to doing so again…"spider thumping" sounds like fun, at least it's a fun way to past the time away!

Thanks, Dr Gary. I've been reading what's happening here when I get a spare momemt. Been way too busy with work and family.

Most of it has been good. Just the deaths of a few family members were not among the good times. But did get to reconnect with some family members at the memorial services. Just wish we could have had it been under happier events.
Thank you for sharing yourself with us at DC and the other Connects. You have given me much to ponder on and some valuable insights.

Hi Graylin Bee,

So sorry to hear about the deaths in your family. It is ironic how so often we connect with each other at family funerals, but don't seem to get together at other times. That is the way a lot of families work.

And thank you for your kind words. I really appreciate it.

Take good care of yourself and let's make sure we don't let so much time go by without touching base.


MAYS 2014-05-02 19:15:38 -0500 Report

I would like to thank EVERYONE here at Diabetic Connect for the warm welcome back greetings that's I have received, this is such a wonderful family and I am glad that I have had the opportunity to be a part of it!

James, it's great being back in this wonderful community, you, as well as many others have made this community one of the greatest places of support concerning diabetes care and management. I cannot imagine this site without you, glad to see that you are still here, your friendship has been my pleasure!

jayabee52 2014-05-06 23:35:24 -0500 Report

I was gone from here for about 6 mos or so due to "connectivity issues", but when the apartment complex's computers got a upgrade about 8 mo ago those connectivity issues are solved, somewhat. I still get kicked off by software troubles, but it is way better than the 2 seconds i was able to stay on the site after logon during those 6 mo I was gone.

I get back to find out you were gone, which was disappointing to me.

God's best to you and yours!
