I am in Columbia as well. I've been diabetic since around 1998. Good to see some other Columbians!

I've been diabetic for over 20 years now, and I live in Columbia. I'm not a great diabetic,, I live here.

I have to admit that I currently live in Alexandria, VA, but I was born and raised in Lincoln, NE and consider myself a Nebraskan/Midwesterner :) Just like to connect with others from the Heartland.
