Hi everyone, I have read a lot of good advice my husband has a few things wrong with, back in March of this year he went into the hospital for Congestive Heart Failure and we then found out he has Diabetes like me his Mom came up here the first time to spend time with him and to find out what was going on with him. Now he is back in the hospital been there a week and has to spend another week or so still in the hospital he gained 30 pounds in a month of fluid so they are trying to get the fluid out of his it went into his stomach, he feels miserable most of the time,anyway, just trying to see how to help him so he won't end up back in there again any ideas? Are there any support groups that we both can talk to? Thanks Lisa C

You're correct about what a great group of people exist on this site! When I look at the friend's list that I have created and gathered in a very short time I am looking at some genuine people who I am proud to call friends. We exchange conversations in the discussion groups as well as behind the scenes through emails and private messages on topics that include but are not limited to diabetes. We talk about life, about goals, about interests and while it may not seem related to diabetes management… it is! We vent and share stories of families, what stresses and pleases us, and well that's what friendship is all about. Please feel free to add me to your friend's list but also to circulate the board reading the product and book reviews, old discussions, adding new ones and making yourself welcomed here… because you are!!!

Hello and welcome. I agree tha this site is . . . SOOTHING. I have just realised that I am calmer, happier and am not as depressed as I have been in years. I'm adding my complements to yours. I hope this feeling continues.
