I wanted to chime in and say thank you to all the wonderful people who take the time to post on this site giving insights on living with the big D (as i call it). I was diagnosed Jan. 2010. It came as no surprise as the majority of my family are also diabetics. My initial a1c was 12.6 and now my last was 7.2 so I still have a way to go to get to my target. The hardest part for me has been realizing that I am not superman any more lol. All my life I have been the one that doesn't get sick. It has been wonderful though learning about how my body reacts to different foods and stresses and learning how to control all of the above. Again I want to thank everyone on this site on giving hope to those of us that are just now learning how to cope with the drastic changes ahead of us.
