I'd just like to say I'm glad to have found this group. Always up for some inspiration and motivation to keep taking care of my Type 2. I was Dx in 1996 but I'm just now "getting into" really working on my diabetes. About time doncha think? My last A1c was 7.7 and my doctor was very happy to hear that I'd found the DOC. Thanks ya'll.

Welcome aboard Pat!

Hi, I am T2, diagnosed 10 yrs ago. I live near Vancouver, British Colombia in Canada. I am new to tudiabetes so forgive me if I ask too many questions. I was upset when I was first diagnosed even though I was Hypoglycemic (low BS) for years. I was so used to eating if I felt crummy that it was hard to stop. Thanks for having me here and I hope I can help focus on the positive things in life (like the sunshine today) Pat
