I am a newbie also, but I feel very much at home with this group and I think you will also. We know how you feel and if you need to vent, your "family" here understands. Take it one day at a time.

Good Morning Vinodh,
Coming to grips can be difficult but you must…we all must. Until there is a cure the only other option is to have difficulties. Trust me, I've been there and the difficulties are worse than the condition. You'll be ok :) Continue to chat with others and read. You're not alone. Have a good and productive day!!

Hello Vinodh,
Its a good day to live.
Please take care of yourself and feel good about yourself..
Please see this episode of Intervention about John who is a diabetic who would not take care of himself.

o my goodness Sarg!!! I just watched all 5 videos of John and I cried so hard! I saw a little bit of myself in him, there are times when I get depressed and I related to that, but I still have to do what I need to do to stay alive! Anytime I feel like I am going down a bad path, I am going to remember John and watched that intervention. I am so glad he is doing better now. It was different seeing it from the outside views. THanks so much for posting, he is a huge motivator for me now!

Welcome! This is a wonderful group of people who will assist you with good advice on where to get answers and be there when you need someone with whom to talk, or just have listen. We all struggle with having to deal with the diabetes. Good luck and again, welcome.

Welcome. When I was first diagnosed as a type 2 I had a terrible time. Then it was explained to me that you need to go through all the steps of grieving before you can begin to accept you diabetes. It has to be extra hard to be a teen and be straddled with diabetes because it really does cramp your style. I know that school has started again but check with your doctor to see if there are diabetic camps for teens or support groups for teens because being with peers that know what you are going through is very helpful. Check out the Paul Newman Hole-in-the-Wall-Gang organization because I know they sometimes have weekend camps for diabetics and could help. Best of luck trying to adjust to being a diabetic and try to keep your chin up. Many of us are cheering for you.

Hi Vinodh,
My two year old baby boy Troy was diagnoised 9 months ago and I am new at this too. I am sorry you are struggling. My heart goes out to you because I think of you and wonder how will Troy feel when he is a teen. I am always scared for him and anytime you need a vote of confidence let me know. You CAN do this. We are all in this together. Don't ever stop hoping and believing in yourself. O.K.? You are strong!!
