I have found a few online support groups but must tell you this is the bunch of the bunch. I haven't been here long (March) but when you look at my list of friends you are looking a genuine friends who I may never meet but that I share so much more than just diabetes. We are a group of people who share lives, feelings, fears, frustrations and everything else. None of us can help control your numbers… that's totally your job with diet, exercise and medication if you're on it. But, we are here for the rest of the story. We may be able to motivate you with stories of our successes and failures. We will listen to you on both your good days and bad days. We are friends. If there's anything that I can do, please look me up. It's easy to just click on my ugly face icon and send a friend request. Again I don't have all of the answers but I do have a genuine concern for others… and that includes YOU!

You have come to the right place. A diagnosis can seem like the end of the world. Actually, it is just the beginning of a new one. One that I have found to be quite incredible. Not that I like having diabetes, but I do like some of the things it teaches me. Discipline, care for my body, healthy habits and more. So take time to be angry, cry if you need to and then you will be free to just get busy. One day at a time is how to do it, and before you know it you will be doing just fine.
There are a lot great folks here to help you out. Just ask, and we will do what we can.
Glad to have you here Teecee.
