I am beginning to understand why I have struggled so much with the diabetes and felt so alone. I had noone to talk to that understood what I was going through or what I was feeling. I have found that now and I am so happy. Thank you all for being here and helping me to see that this is something that doesn't have to mean the end of life but the beginning of a new life =)

We all have struggles just like you. Struggles seem to be harder when you are alone or feel like you are alone. Or have someone but they don't understand. Just keep on going, don't stop don't ever give up. Life is worth living even with struggles. I am new to this website and I feel the same way about this website. I didn't realize that there are as many diabetic people until I found this website. I hope a cure is found for all of us but until then we have just to keep on going. Take care!
