I've been coming to this site for several months now and want say how much I appreciate everyone. When I first started I was looking for answers and had no trouble finding them. I was just starting MDI and had no idea what to do. What I have learned and continue to learn has helped me greatly.
What impresses me the most is the support I see given out daily here. There are new members joining daily asking the same questions over and over and each is treated with respect with plenty of people willing to give help. I have seen on other sites snide remarks telling newcomers to search for answers to questions that been answered before. That doesn't happen here.
Seasoned members here will at times have minor and sometimes major rants, no one ever tells them they don't want to hear it . Instead there is always someone that will listen and most of the time agree. When someone comes here down in the dumps or just looking for a little understanding he or she gets it. We try to cheer each other up when we are down and are always understanding because we really do understand.
Encouragement is handed out daily here. We are all bewildered at times but there is always someone that will pat us on the back and tell us that we can do it. Praise is also handed out frequently because we all know that accomplishments don't come easy.
I have seen no major flame wars here. There have been heated discussions but they were handled with respect. If we can't agree at least we disagree agreeably.
There's even the occasional bit of humor thrown in for good measure.
IS THIS A GREAT BUNCH OF PEOPLE OR WHAT?
Like others, I found TuD while searching for help related to diabetes, in my case, issues with MM CGMS. I found much more than what I could have hoped for.
This is definitely a GREAT BUNCH of folks.
I just want to say, as enthusiastically as possible, "Me, too!"
Thanks to all from me also!!!!! Love to see the caring- I am not alone!!!!
