First blog ever just a few words to thank all those with advice for me. I am a backsliding diabetic due to finances. I have read up on a few things and I’m always willing to learn more about this (is it condition or disease???) I have heard it referred as both I just like to think of it as the day my life changed (and not for the better, for the most part) but this site has given me more hope than I have felt for a long time. It is a really special site and there seems to be light at the end of this long dark tunnel I have been in for so long. You all know how living with diabetes has changed you and I think that this is the best place for me to try and cope with it. Maybe with a few lighthearted comments and some serious discussions I will try and do the right thing for me this time instead of putting diabetes aside.
