Hi Folks, I am DJ and I am a type 2 diabetic. Some here know me,but I have been absent for a while and just popped in from time to time to check out the discussions…Sorry to be gone for so long,(a bit over a year I think..),but had some medical issues I was dealing with,eye surgery and digestive issues mainly. Just wanted to get back in here and say "Hi" to my old friends and hopefully make some new friends!!
The Mouse has returned…:)

Hello to all my old friends and to all the new Friends…Please if I am not on your friends list I sure hope you will add me!! Ok, so I have to be honest…it isn't actually a white mouse..it is a lab rat, and I chose my avatar at a point in my life when I felt like a human experiment, all the sticking,pokeing,proding,and experimenting with diabeties drugs,Insulin,Diet changes…the extreme highs and lows,All spelled "Lab Rat" to me…so that's what my avatar is all about.
Now,just a bit about me and my journey with this condition…I have been through most all the stages with this and yes it is a daily battle, but that is the secret to this condition,"One Day at a Time" & Knowlege. Learn everything you can and learn what works for YOU, because what works for someone else doesn't necessarily work for YOU…Ok, and right now you are asking "why is she typing YOU in caps??? It is ALL ABOUT YOU…Not your family,not your friends…YOU. YOU have to become a bit selfish with this condition, you have to find the time to take care of YOU…your diet,your exersize,your testing,your mind,your life…and then guess what..The rest will all fall into place. You all have made a big step in the right direction just by joining DC, there is a wealth of information and knowlege here, and some of the most wonderful and amazing people you will find anywhere!!
We all get depressed,we all get frustrated but having at least one place to come and Share, Learn,Vent and Laugh will help.

OK, so I came back and now I am leaving again…You know people say that if you say something,No matter what it is..and others don't acknowlege it,then you haven't stirred them to react, but if people comment whether it be good or bad comments then you have at least affected them in some way and that is good…Dear Friends "Be affected",and be well!!

Ok, so yeah…I changed my mind, and I have decided to stay and not allow a few opinions to chase me away again…I will be "affected" and have been and will continue to be by the many wonderful people here…and besides I still have sooooo much to learn and where better to do that??
