My name is John and this is my first post so be patient with me. I've never done anything like this in my life. I was first diagnosed with diabetes in 1975. So far so good. I have the normal issues by have been able to cope so far.:D

Welcome to the forum, John. If you've been diabetic for 36 years and 'so far so good' then I think we might be looking at a mutual learning experience :)

Are you Type 1 or 2? Medication? Insulin? Complications? We ask a lot of questions around here, and hopefully answer some as well.

Hello & welcome, John. I'm betting some of us could learn a lot from you . . . I hope you'll get comfortable with it & visit us often. Ask all the questions you want - if we don't know the answers, we prob'ly know somebody who does.

Not even sure I can remember my first days coming into forum-land. I was so new to PCs all the way around in those days . . . put me in front of an AS400 - I was good to go, but had never had an online computer at home.

Take care & thank you for joining us!

John, congrats for doing well after 36 years of diabetes. Do you use insulin, or medication? you did not mention your type. I have been type 1 for 65 years, and am very healthy. Tell us more about yourself, if you don't mind.

Richard
