We're almost there!

Our launch date for the new TuDiabetes website has been moved back 24 hours

When you log into TuDiabetes tomorrow (April 21st) you will find yourself in our new home!

If you want to join the TuDiabetes community please send an e-mail to TuDiabetesAdmin@gmail.com. We will send you an invitation to join after the migration is completed.

Read about the migration and see images of the new site!

Just to preface this: I know some people truly base their outlook on life on science and reason. I'm not one of those people. I believe I was "given" this disease because God, or a higher power of some kind believes I can handle it. I think that I was diagnosed with diabetes (T1) so I could "spread the word", and do something beneficial for our community. Is this just me who thinks this, or do you guys, somewhere in the back of your mind believe the same thing?

Please tell me if I'm crazy :)

Listen Frances,
By you generalizing "Americans" as stupid, I find that offensive. When a cure is discovered, the hell I will take it. Religion is not based on ignorance or matter of intelligence. I choose to believe what I believe, and don't tell me, that I'm "slipping down the ranks."
Yes! I had a drug problem and after my last round, I ask for a little help. I knew I wasn't strong enough myself. Well a couple of weeks later I am in ICU,DKA, dx'ed type 1 at 52. Careful what you ask for. LOL I admit it worked!!!
I agree with you Egirl. Its just about something inside of me that makes me feel there is a reason, Diabetes is a continuous state of mind for me. A state of mind that I must take care of myself, and keep aware about whats really important. Few things are... And on our daily routine we get lost, so diabetes is a tool to put us back on the way.
Diabetes is definitely a part of me, a important part of my life and personality. Although its a bad thing at first sight, learning how to manage sugar levels can be very similar about how to manage a good life. Eating right, exercising, managing stress... Its something all should do, diabetics or no.
So, yes, I think there's a reason, and if i could born again and choose being Diabetic or not, I would choose yes.
Take Care!!
