hello everyone i was at a meeting a few days ago and a young lady was talking about being ashame of be a diabetic because when her should drop people look at her different. i share with her its just like any sickness you learn to deal with it. and you can look wll and feel well when its in control. i also told her to keep a snack in her purse so when this happen she will have something on hand. she is very new at this .i told her to join the connection because it my be someone feeling the same way and it could help her.

That was a great thing to share with her. She won't feel alone here and she will never have to feel ashamed of being a diabetic. You are a good friend to her and I hope that together, you guys will find ways to help each other out as well.
