Hello, everyone. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in March of '07. I am trying very hard to keep myself healthy. I am glad to have found this forum and I am eager to meet new people and learn more about what I need to be doing to keep myself healthy. I did attend diabetes education classes and have good support through the diabetes education coordinators there. They have been very helpful and supportive. All the nurses who work there either have diabetes or live with someone who does.

Hello Rubystar: :)

We're Glad that you are here. Gee, that's interesting that all the Nurses that you see have Diabetes or live with someone who has it. Wow! That's a handy place to visit.

I'm Glad to hear that you have accepted Diabetes this soon and are learning all that you can. Good for you. These are the only vessels we came with. ;) Welcome!

They planned it that way in the Diabetes Education Center. I think the hospital felt they would better understand and educate new diabetics if they had the experience themselves. I also work for the hospital that offers the Diabetes Education. I am a Medical Technologist and work in the laboratory of the hospital.

That's a Fine idea. I see where you are coming from then. I'd be sitting on their doorstep during my lunch. :D Good that you work there.

I must say, it is sad hearing of so many millions with Diabetes. On the other hand the net has exploded with Diabetes communities and other informational sites about Diabetes(most of it true)which was so lacking before. At least now when they are dxd., they have a chance at a Better Life.
