Today, TuDiabetes reaches its fourth anniversary. Four years filled with amazing moments and lessons that we never cease to be amazed by.

I want to invite you to share your favorite TuDiabetes memory of the past 4 years and ask you to take a few minutes to complete our Fourth Anniversary Survey:

Your replies will be extremely useful to help us shape the future of TuDiabetes and our efforts at the Diabetes Hands Foundation.

HERE'S TO MANY MORE YEARS of support, sharing information and raising awareness together!!

wow! I've been on this site for that long??? Happy birthday TUdiabetes!
My favorite memory is when i joined TuDiabetes and the warm welcome i received. i felt like i had come home.

[advertising[ Please visit the Phlat Tuesday party tomorrow. Or today!
When I first got here the memory that stands most in my mind was that Finally I was a member with other diabetic's and didn't have to fight out my feelings to "normal" ppl here I could just be me. THANK YOU!
Ok done the survey but entered the wrong year that I joined. Judith you know that everybody here will help you just ask us! Manny was one of the 1st (if not the 1st) to welcome me. That feeling of belonging made me feel so good!

So cool! :) Thanks Danny
Here is what I found! :) I am sure I have more... Enjoy!

I have two favorite memories - maybe three.

One was the poetry contest,
Second was the "Senses of Diabetes" video contest
Third was the publication of the "No-Sugar Added" book of poetry.

We need to have more creative contests.

Thanks for four great years. Here's to many more!

i agree i like the creative contest. I would not enter. but i like seeing the results
Terry, DarGirl,

I agree those I my favorite moments too. I just love to see how creative this community is.

Happy anniversary to all members who make Tu D the BEST!

Too many touching memories to pick just a few. I vividly remember feeling that I was home when I joined. Tears the first time people understood how I felt as a newbie PWD. Went straight to my heart. Huge smiles & delight at the creativity of the Making Sense of Diabetes submissions (loved them & Word In Your Hand). Awe & goose bumps at the magnificent Big Blue Test video. Respect for the tireless work of Manny, Andreina, DHF & the admin team who keep us moving forward & providing a safe, diverse venue. Feeling honored to be asked to join the admin team to give back a little to a community that gives so much. Continually amazed at the knowledge & kindness shared here.
