Stumbled across this web site but can't figure out how everything works. Who are the "friends" and do we direct our questions to one of them? What are these points all about? Seems there should be a page for new users because other people must be as confused as I am. I am a Type 2 diabetic but have no idea how to use these pages. I'm sure this isn't even a discussion page but I didn't know any other way to "get in".

You are doing just fine! Glad to have you here.
Friends can be added to your list by clicking on a photo on the site, and you can read a little about them and invite them to be your friend. Once they accept your invitation, you can write to them in personal emails on the site.

If you just use the links on the left side of the page, they are pretty self explanatory as to what to expect. We don't "take away" points if you post something incorrectly. We are very easy going here.

The points are to show activity levels on the site. More points generally means they have participated a lot or for a long time. (we are now 2 years old as a site!) There have been some contests concerning the points, and John will announce those as they happen.

So I would say that you are doing well and if you need any specific help, just pop someone a note. You can also go to the "health center" to get expert advice. What you get in the discussions is experience advice and in general a personal view of what we do dealing with diabetes on a daily basis.

I hope you enjoy the site and if you get stuck, just "wave a flag"! We will come to help you out.
