Hello, I am new to this group and was hoping there would be people close to my area. I am about 10 minutes from Kingsport, Tn, and would love to get together with some diabetics here. Feel free to add me and talk. Thanks you all! (: BTW: I have been diabetic since I was 7, October of 2000, type 1, insulin pump dependent. (:

Hey everyone. I have been diabetic for 9 years and insulin dependent for 2 years. I am looking to start a support group in my area which is Manchester/Tullahoma, Tenn. I don't know about everyone else but I sure could use some daily help. Everyday is a struggle. If anyone is interested, look me up and maybe we can help each other.

Anyone else here dealing with visual problems? I'm legally blind now and can no longer drive a car....man, what a downer! Talk about inhibiting your social life....

Hey ya'll We like one more person who will enter their A1C on TuAnalyze. Will you be that one person? Go to the top of your page and click on TuAnalyze it will tell you how to do it from there and remember it is private. (no one else can see your A1C) This helps out with research for other diabetics. COME ON NOW!!! LET"S SHOW 'EM WHAT TN IS MADE OF!!!!!!
