Hi I am new and this is my first post. I have type 2 and am on Lantus at night and on 2 pills a day. I am not doing so hot, I am overweight and have to get on track. I saw this new group in my email and decided to join. I am for sure looking for support and motivation. Thanks in advance.

It's hard to take care of ourselves, but it's so important our lives depend on it! Welcome to the group. I've been a type 2 for 27 years, and learn something new every day.

All of us here on diabetic connect hold hands together and motivate eachother all the time. Things will get better for you, you have to eat the right way and maybe a little exercise here and there if you can. Ask all the questions you want and your new friends here will be sure to answer them for you. I too am type 2 which came as a big scare for me in October 2009, but I've been making some changes and I like how I feel and what I see. It's not easy but our lives make it worth it. We only live once, so lets live healthy.
