I'm new to DC and I would like to connect with positive people who would like to share the positive things they have done to control their diabetes. Many of the discussions I have read so far have been more scary than helpful. I am new to this site and I don't mean to be offensive. It's important to me to surround myself with people who are managing their Type II Diabetes successfully and are willing to share the things they've done to make that happen. It's also important to me to take a positive approach instead of allowing my diabetes to careen out of control only to be freaked out about the problems that have come due to not managing their diabetes well. I am one of 8 siblings and we have all been diagnosed with Type II diabetes. Although I am not the youngest I was the last to be diagnosed. I am surrounded by family members who's diabetes is out of control and I really need to connect with others who wish to take a more positive proactive approach to diabetes. I have 3 grown boys and I am concerned they will someday have diabetes as well. I am determined to show them their is a way stay positive and to manage diabetes instead of diabetes managing them.
Thanks for listening, BeckieJ
