Hello everone! My name is Terra. I am mother of 2 and I have Type II. I lost my mom at age 12 to Type I due to kidney failure. Lets just say she did not take care of herself, thus lost the battle.
Medicine has come a LONG way since 1985. I want to watch my children grow up , graduate, get married, have babies and enjoy every minute of this with them. Everything happens for a reaso, and I can either let this disease define me or take control of it and be happy and healthy.

I have emotional issues, I will not lie. Although, I hope to find friendship and support to ease the pain and be encouraged and inspired by others!

LOL! Hi, Linda! :D

To add who I am:

HI GUYS! I'm Rosie, a currently-30-year-old (my 31st birthday is the 21st of April) that has an 11yo daughter (Em) and a wonderful husband. We live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and have six rabbits and two cats. So, in my eyes, I have NINE KIDS! :D

Hey, my Tu Diabetes friends...my girlfriend has Type 1 diabetes, so I just started a campaign called 'Run To Stop Diabetes'. Visit www.RunToStopDiabetes.com for more info on the campaign & let me know what you think!! We're running the 2011 ING NYC Marathon to raise money & awareness for diabetes.
