I would just like to say Hello and welcome to all our newest members here. First I would like to congratulate you on joining one of the best Diabetes information and friendship sites on the Net!! The information available here is incredible, and the friendship and support are invaluable.
If you are new to this condition it can be at times over-whelming and depressing but here you will find answers to your questions and friendships that can last a lifetime.If you have had this condition for a while then your experiance can be a great asset to the community, so please share with us.
In my humble opinion this is a good start to getting your life and health back on track or simply keeping your day to day life on an even keel.
Remember that one of the most important lessons to be learned is "One day at a time", and "If I live for today,I will live better tomorrow".
If you need us we will try to help,if we can and if we don't know an answer we will try to help you find it but remember No question is silly and your feelings and thoughts are important here.
Be sure to check out the categories on the left side of the site…so much great Info available.
Again WELCOME to the Family!!

Thanks for the warm welcome and for the past 30 mins I have been looking at different parts of this site to see what its all about. I just had to do some lab work because the last one I had done my sugar was elevated so I guess right now that puts in pre diabetic stage. It runs in my family so I'm not that supprised and I know with the right diet (which I have hight cholesterol) will really help. I guess alot of it is just eating healthy and exercise. I'm happy I have found this site and will be happy to part of this family.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I was diagnosed seven months ago. I just found this site a couple of weeks ago and have found it very friendly and informative. It's been great.

Hi Ginger,
We are all learning together, and it is NOT whining to express how you feel,and we all have a right to our feelings and to expressing them and to getting an opinion on what is happening to us with this condition…this is all in a way of self help,releaseing pent up feelings also releases stress…Right??
Have a wonderfilled Day :)

I agree. This site is wonderful for newly diagnosed or ones that have been dealing with it for quite a while. Please feel free to pose any and all questions.
