Manny: This website has helped me to some extent. Even though I haven’t really posed any technical questions, it has helped me socialize in the “community.” I still feel a bit lonely compared to some of the regulars like Renee, Scott, et al. but I appreciate that they have probably had their presence noted long before I even got my new computer! (Yea! I finally joined the 21st century on 12/12/08!)
I am looking for more than information since I have had T2 for 20+ years and have gone through a couple of hospital-based programs. I do know that things change and new things are added through research every day and that a person has to keep up to date if they are to survive. If we waited for the DR’s office to advise us of advances/changes, we would surely all die off of old age!
Back to what I am looking for … a group of friends to laugh with (Scott, you joker), commiserate with when things fall apart (Angela,a big moral support), get a kick in the butt when I get out of line (none yet, thank God). You see, I come from a dysfunctional family and have no real close friends near where I live to act as such supports. I’ll get there eventually just by putting in my dime’s worth (inflation, you know) til people get sick of me!
LOL means lots of love!
