Hi ~ I guess you could call me a newbie to the site but I have been looking and reading for quite some time, I just never enrolled. Dont ask why, its an awesome site and I should have just didnt.

I find this site the most informative site that Ive been to regarding diabetes, not to mention all the recipes and have tried several of them already *heaven*

Im looking forward to learning more about this wicked disease we "live" with and how you all have found ways to be more healthy. Its easier to learn through experience than trying on my own, at least that is what I have learned through my years.

Be well everyone ~ Cheryl

Hi Cheryl,

Well, you are among some of the most involved and supportive people on the planet. Glad you decided to jump in and join the conversation!

Thank you Dr. Gary. I am finding everyone here not only to be a pleasure to chat with, but so very informative. The passion behind every word to help better another person or share personal experiences is felt and appreciate beyond words. There is nothing better than to share with people who know exactly what it is that you are experiencing, the challenges you face and the joy in succeeding.

Have a beautiful day *Hugs* Cheryl

It is a good thing to look before jumping in with both feet.
If you need anything holler. We're full of . . . advice. (some may even be good.)

Thank you! I am finding a lot of … advice all over the place *winks* Its good to learn that I am by far alone in this quest and with people who for the most part, want to see another get better and succeed =) Ive read some good things of late that really made my heart warm and hope to be like they were one day.

Welcome to DC. I agree this group has been very helpful for me. Hope you had two good appointments this week.

sNerTs1 2010-11-05 23:32:10 -0500 Report

Thank you Graylin, I indeed did have awesome appointments. I was worry about my eyes and found out my prescription changed a little and well my age is telling me to do the bifocal thang which I denied myself of until this year. All is good.

Thank you again for your well wishes. I hope you have a beautiful weekend.

Thank you Harlen. Im doing great. Today I have the dreaded dentist to see for my teeth cleaning AUGH! lol. Tomorrow its the eye doctor and Im set again for awhile. Thank you for asking. I dont really experience many fluctuations in my sugars which is a good thing and I guess I am lucky that way. Yesterday I hit an all time low of 82, decided it was best I eat a little something. I forget to do that from time to time LOL

How are you doing?

Have a wonderful day Harlen =)
