Hi Barbara my name is Jennifer , I see that you live nearby and that you've been a diabetic since 89 . I was diagnosed in 1990 when I was only 10 . I was wondering how you deal with it and have you had to deal with any complications . I have sensitivity in my feet ( I can feel them) it just doesn't feel good if they are touched meaning I can't even deal with a pedicure . Otherwise I'm ok

Welcome home! Being diagnosed and living with Diabetes is one of the hardest things anyone can ever go through. However, you no longer have to do it alone. TuDiabetes is a great place to seek support, information, advice, and general friendship. Be sure to introduce yourself on the forums; tell us your story. Also, take part in a conversation or lose yourself in the tons and tons of information. If you need any help or have any questions, feel free to ask! - Matt
