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.
