"Frozen Shoulder is very common amongst diabetics. I have had 3, even though I only have two arms. The only thing that I found that works is VERY aggressive physio. You have to take the movement to the "stop" point and slowly oscillate it…"

Hello! Thank you for having me as a friend Catfan....
One of the appealing factors of tu.diabetes is that you can connect with anyone the world over 24/7, and that folks here "get it". I'm in southwestern Ontario. I'm a wife of 33 years (hubby is also diabetic), mom to two grown children, a grandma to 3 lovable little ones, a teacher, and before that an illustrator (still do some) and graphic designer....I speak French fluently, I read, history fascinates me, I paint, sing, walk, garden, ski, ride my bike....did I mention "read"? I love having friends over, I bake/cook, am an eclectic music lover, an animal lover...the ocean...ah the ocean...it speaks to me! Oh...and I have diabetes (and a few other things).
Nice to have you as a friend!!! Tell me a bit about yourself!
Keep in touch, ok?
hugs....linda

Welcome to the family! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of all you will learn that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment.
