Hi there!
Another diabetic aussie joining this little group.
I can't believe there are only 18 members in this group!

Considering that....
- Diabetes is one of the leading causes of death in Australia and is a Government-declared National Health Priority Area.
- It affects more than 900,000 Australians, with approximately 90 percent having type 2.

Where are you all?
We have a great support site here! :-)

Hello! G'day!

I seem to have brain-stop-itis today as I meant to type something fun and meaningful here to say hello, but at the moment, the old brain just hasn't a clue what to say. I know ... the moggy has my brain! LOL.

G'day Gaelyne!

Thanks for the hello, much appreciated any way you say it! :-)
And don't worry, I've got brain-stop-itis practically all day everyday! :-)

Have a great day!
I very much agree with you, Loren! Hope you can help spread the word about the site.
