Everytime I get a message that says "Cara left a comment on TN diabetics..." I get confused, because I am not used to there being more than one Cara, haha. I guess I can get used to it!

Glad you found us and joined Ms. Lizz. :) Spreading the word is so much fun. And meeting new people makes it even better.

Thanks to Chaps from Diabetic Connect for directing me to TUDiabetes and to Cara for steering me to Tennessee Diabetics. It is wonderful to be in contact with
others who have the same concerns as myself. We always care and share with each other and since Cara has asked that we keep the word spreading, I will certainly do that. I have friends now everywhere, but I have met and made some wonderful friendships from Tennessee too. I know my relationship and participation in this Community will be a blessing.

Peace and Love to you all,
Ms. Lizz

Don't forget to check out the Event for February 7, 2008 in Nashville. Adult Type 1 Diabetics get together. I know there are a lot of us here and I am going to be there! You should come too.
