Good Morning Everyone !

In spite of a few isolated incidents and derogatory comments posted here on DC, we as diabetics must not lose focus of our primary objective, awareness and care of diabetes.

We are, as a community, the helpful voice of diabetics, learning, educating and supporting one another.

We cannot allow others to create animosity, division and confusion among the members and future members here.

Let's stand united, focused and dedicated.
Ignored, diabetes can and will create problems health wise, but ignoring ignorance deprives it of the chance to breed.

Let's stay focused, we can do it.

Good Evening Everyone
I'm getting the feeling that this discussion has been bought up because of me. I know that this site is about and is fouces about Diabetius but pain come in manys. But if this is your way of asking me to leave I will go. It wil hurt me alot becuse of this site I have learned to love and like myself and met alot of good people. I have learned alot about myself and alot about diabetes. I want to thank all the ones whom tryed to help me with trying to find out about fibormyalga which come from norapathy which I also had due to diabetes I am consently falling which is part of it I have know strangh in my right hand which is part of it. I thought the perpous of this site was to help eachother. So take care and god bless everyone Penny

Penny, please allow me to clarify and state this,
This discussion is not about you or your afflictions.

Recently this site was targeted by someone who decided to attack DC and it's members by posting obscene photos and derogatory comments when replying to discussions that were posted.
Such an attack was not necessary, if you do not approve of someone or something, all you have to do is avoid it or them.

Penny, as far as you are concerned, you are family and your problem is worthy of both attention and discussion.
There is no disrespect towards you or your problems, if anyone here can help you, I am sure that they, or we will try our best to do so.

I do not attack or circumvent, if I cannot help you or say anything helpful to you, I won't.
I really wish that I could help you with your problems, my suggestion to you is seek professional help, don't leave this site or the wonderful members here.
Continue your growth and awareness, and most of all stop feeling bad and sorry for yourself.

You are both loved and cherished, SMILE !

I am sorry for the miss understanding. I like the advice the you have giving to me in the past and hope that you continue to giveing them to me. Thank you for being a Friend Love Penny

MAYS 2010-06-22 21:55:16 -0500 Report

Penny, no offense taken, my advice is and will always be available.
My hand of friendship is and will always be extended to you and any one that I can help.


GabbyPA 2010-06-23 06:16:13 -0500 Report

Penny, if you are getting emails from people on the site that are like that, please let us know. We can deal with that. We don't want anyone feeling attacked here, that is not what we are about and we want to make sure our members feel safe. I have gotten emails here that have been very ugly, I just let John know, and he takes care of them. So never feel like you have to put up with that kind of things here. We don't tolerate it, either should you.

ccritch 2010-06-23 14:26:27 -0500 Report

We are here to help each other get through tough times with our daily lives as diabetics and other personal issues if we can. Stay strong and don't leave you have a community of friends and family here whom are all a great support group with great advice and suggestions. As Gabby said let them know ASAP they will take care of the ignorance that is going around.

God Bless you

Any comments or advice based on experience posted here on this site would be greatly appreciated !


GabbyPA 2010-06-22 19:17:04 -0500 Report

If you found derogatory comments by a member, it might not have been that member. We had a hack come and take over at least one member's good name. So if you find these things, Please, please report them to a moderator and DO NOT make any comments back to them.
This community is full of great people and we will not let some lost souls mess with us. What we have here is so very special.

MAYS 2010-06-22 19:26:00 -0500 Report

I have met the most helpful and supportive people here.
What we have here is very special and productive, let's keep it that way.
