Some of you know me and some of you will get to know me…I am a Type 2 diabetic for about 2 years now. When I was first diagnosed I went crazy looking for research, and found this awsome site. At that time it was still in it's newbie stage, but I still feel like I had found a home.

A year and a half ago, my father in law passed away and we were forced to move from New Orleans to right outside of Seattle, WA. We could not afford to rent a uhaul and therefore we sold what we could, packed the car up with personal stuff, had that shipped and flew to our new home, having no idea what we were going to do. Since then, I have found a job that I love, my hubby is being a great stay at home dad and my daughter (4) is pretty content.

While all of this was going on, I strayed very far from DC and always had that feeling like something was missing. A few weeks ago, I came back and these couple of weeks have made me a better person. I'm happier, calmer, and because of this my BS levels are slowly going back down.

I just wanted to take a moment or two to thank John, Gabby, and Amy for making this site a place that we all can call home. Here I have found advice, understanding, compassion, love, and new friends!


Blessed Be

It is great to have you back!! I did miss you. You were a huge part of our community and we are glad to have you back. I am also glad that it is doing for you such great things. I, too, drifted away for a few months and now that I am back, things are much better. It just shows how important sites like this are and how blessed we are to have a unique community unlike any other.

Thank you for being a member of this family.
You give just as much as you get from this wonderfully supportive site.
Because of you and everyone else here, this site and the purpose for it will only improve and expand to help diabetics, caregivers and the curious.

Most importantly, "Thank You," for coming home!
