Im on this site daily and I hear a lot of my friends talking about why they want to give up, why their numbers are so high when testing their blood. Why they are so tired. We got to stick together we are all in this together. We all want to live to see another day, I know I do! We got to take hold of our lives and start a new, by doing things for ourselves. Even if its just a quick walk to the end of your blocks, or a quick bike ride, or even walking up and down the stairs to wash and dry clothes in a day. But it's only one of us, and lets start to take care of ourselves. Today when I woke up I felt good to have another day actually my 45th birthday today.

Thanks Judi that was nice of you to say, I feel we have to live our lives the way we want others to perceive us. I love to smile and be happy, so I try to give that to the world.

You are right, we are all a family of sorts, and that's what I love about this site. I always know where to go for advice, a laugh, or information. Finding out I am diabetic was probably the best thing that ever happened to me, for I now am watching what I eat and I am exercising on my wii fit for 45 mins every day. I no longer live to eat…I eat to live. I hope your birthday was a happy one!!

Thank you so much for the compliment!! Thought everybody wanted to know what I really look like, so I uploaded my picture last night. Needed that, my 3 sons keep me going 21,19 & 16 yrs old.

You are right, if we don't take care of ourselves who will. I always make sure to

Hope you have a very Happy Birthday and m any more to come. Dan
