I just wanted to say Thank You to everyone here for being here for me and my finace Ty. I have to say that this site has given me motivation to learn more about Diabeties, eat healthy, start walking…Ty and I did plan that one already but now I am anxious to share how well I am doing, just having others to talk with has helped cuz I have not been out there so to speak so its been a learning experience and fun all in one, not to mention I feel my two cents may have helped another which always makes me feel excellent. Oh, we also got the Omego 3 pills, Ty is LOVING them, so he's not directly on here but he does he something out of this as well. Basically my whole point is there is NO regrets coming to this site and meeting all of you GREAT people, thank you so much for your time and support…you have made us feel very welcome! Sheila N Ty

Sheila this is a wonderful site, there are alot of people who want to help and will help figure things out if they do not have the answers…I am happy for you & Ty. I have been on this site for about a year (I think) and it has helped me so much.. I am not a diabetic but my son is t1 and it has been a struggle for me, and for him of course, but I needed someone to talk to and have somewhere that I could go and get advice..I am so happy that I found this site. Believe me when I say it has saved my sanity…I know my son has the disease, but I felt responsible and I wanted to fix it, I have learned that it is not my disease and I just need to give my son the support he needs without the nagging ( that is sooo hard)..I feel that i have laid the sod and now he has to see it grow. It is such a joy to have friends who really understand. I am very glad that you are a part of this wonderful site, and if there is ever anything that I can help you with, please do not hesitate to let me know…

Friends,

Tina

Tina.
First, Thnak you for your lovely commens to Ty and myself. It helped me just now cuz I was having a moment myself, lol Nothing big, just a moment and you picked my mood up, thank you. I really could not imagine seeing one of my kids with this and caring for them throughout it, I definately give you a pat on the back for that! But yes comming here to help express emotions, learn more, etc is great I agree for both of us. But again, thank you so much, and I appreciate your offer. I may just look you up yanno, lol Take care, thanks Sheila n Ty

Thanks for reminding us all what is great about this site. It has been remarkable to watch how kind, thoughtful, and helpful this community is. I guess when you share something like a chronic disease, there is an instant bond that's pretty hard to describe.

Thanks, Sheila for all you have contributed.
