I am very happy with all the frends I have made here,All the help I have reseved and given.
I am a Diabetic and its a hard life.
I like to think we help each other with it.For the frends that I have made here I will do anything for and I would like to think they would for me as well.I never tell somone what to do, I only let them know what works for me.If I dont know the anser to a question I will sey so.We are a famly here is what I feel,
I have gotten info from frends here that my Endo didnt know.When I first came here I felt that having diabetes was my falt that I did this to me by not eatting right or not working out as much as I needed to thanks to all the others here I now know that it was never my falt that I didnt do this to me.My Doc told me that it was me that did it to me,I got a new Doc lol and shes good.
As a frend I share me not just info,and I am a Diabetec I know how you feel I know the stress your going thrue how lost you feel how you try and try but dont seem to get anywhere yep I know how it feels.
Best wishes to all
I am thankfull for this site

Harlen, you are a wonderful, precious human being, and I love you my dear friend…As, others have stated, I too think that you are probably the very first person that I made friends with when I came to this site, and I too do not remember how I found it, but I am so glad that I did…I have always enjoyed our conversations, and still do… You always have such good advice…I too love this site and all the wonderful people here who are loving caring people, who are like family, and I CONSIDER them my family… Hugs, and best wishes to you, my dear friend! :)

I can't remember how I found this site, but since coming here I have learned a lot that I didn't know before about diabetes and the struggles people have with it. I don't know anybody around here that has diabetes so didn't know how people lived with it. I have been to other sites but this site is far and above the rest as being the best I have ever been to. This is the best family I have to be able to share my problems and my joy with. I would not trade this family for anything. And I have made many friends here and Love everyone of them.

Harlen; I know I'm still pretty new here and I read these disscusions most everyday ( except a couple days ago when I took an ambulance ride ). I'm kinda bashful and don't talk much until I'm comfortable with new surroundings. I will say this much though, you say you're thankful for this site but, I feel this site should be thankful to have you and I think I speak for everyone who belongs here…Jeff

Hey Harlen, I agree with you. DC is like a family to me, even though I joined not too long ago. It's good to know that you are not alone and there are others who know how you feel and what you are going through. I am lucky to have found this site by chance and so thankful for everyone that I have met here.
