My aunt, who is diabetic, had one of her legs amputated above the knee a couple of weeks ago. I can't even imagine how she feels. I just try to be encouraging. Another aunt, who has passed, had to have her foot amputated years ago. My Dad was also diabetic. Diabetes runs on the paternal side of my family. After I was diagnosed in June 2010, I didn't realize just how difficult this life change was going to be. So, I'm still in the learning stage, and trying to figure out how to eat healthy. I'm looking forward to meeting new friends, and to advice from those "who have been there." Happy Thanksgiving to all!
