I am new to the neighborhood. I was diagnosed with type 2 last September. The condition didn't scare me because my mom had DM. But the thought that it's been with me for a while is unbearable. I have never been open to any family or close relatives about it. With the kind of support I'm getting, I'd rather keep it to myself -- but not with you.
I'm glad you've found this online source of support and encouragement. You might also find it helpful to work with a diabetes educator so that you can learn as much as possible about how to manage diabetes. ~Lynn @Glucerna
