Default Hello. I have type 2

Hi. Is there a separate area for type 2?

Nope, we're all in this together! We have different issues, but also similarities, and we tend to look at what type a person is when we respond. We have all ages and types, more T2s just because there are more in the population.

Welcome to the forum - when you're inclined, feel free to tell us a little something about yourself, how long you've had diabetes, how you manage it, etc.

Not yet . . . we've grown a lot in the last year, so what you see here is us bursting at the seams! Stick around & you'll see improvements coming all the time - we aren't spinning our wheels.

Being an old grey bear myself, let me welcome you to our diabetes "den". I hope you'll tell us more about yourself - we look forward to getting better acquainted.
Take care & thank you for joining us!

Hey and from this middle-aged though very "grizzly" bear, LOL.

Nice to have you here. Please tell us about yourself - we're a friendly bunch!

Welcome to DF from another old gray mare, well maybe just partially gray. One of the reasons I like DF is because they don't separate forums into Type 1 or Type 2 or Pre D. As said we are all here to support each other. Glad you found us.

Read here and I think you'll come away with the answers you seek. It's kind of a long thread, but lots of good information.

Then we'd like it if you would go to the introductions board and start a new thread telling us a little more about yourself and how you manage your diabetes. Thanks!

I am sometimes too "harsh". I feel that sometimes one must be "harsh" to get the point across.
