Things Are Changing!

The migration of TuDiabetes has begun

Content created between now and the launch of our new site on April 20th will NOT be moved to that new home, but our community values and Terms of Service still apply during this time.We are not accepting new members during this transition period. If you want to join the TuDiabetes community please send an e-mail to We will send you an invitation to join after the migration is completed.

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

In response to the continued urging of my dear friends on this site, I am now putting the events in my life for the last 4 or 5 years into a book. My friends have told me how it has encouraged them and taught them a few things about themselves. I want to contribute something positive to this world and look upon this endeavor as one way to help. If it only points out what not to do as a person with diabetes, it will have served the greater good. I hope to move into the final stages of collection soon and am looking forward to the contributions of a Professor Emerita in linguistics who is encouraging me in this venture.

Wish me luck in this endeavor since there are many segments of my efforts floating around cyber Hell. I sure need help in not hitting those mysteriously located keys that send text into the void!! Comments from visitors to my site are definitely appreciated.
