I am 40 year old female that was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes on July 22, 2008. With my family history, I figured that I would be diagnosed but I was hoping in like 10 to 20 years. When I found out I was shocked and for about a week I just kept to my self. But when I finally told a few close friends and family, they were very supported which made me feel better. I just need support and motivation to to work out to keep my A1C level where it needs to be. I just want to live my life to the fullest as long as I have the support and love from my friends and family.

Welcome! You have definately come to the right place for motivation and support! =) there are so many helpful things on here and wonderful people who make sure you know you’re not alone!
