So glad you have joined us Darlene. This place has so much to offer. There are groups for people with like circumstances or interest. Blog posts where members convey their thoughts and experiences. And there are the forums where we come together for discussions.

In our groups section you will find groups of people from different geographic areas. I will have to admit that I had never heard of Cuenca so I did a Google search. I found cities in Spain and Ecuador. You might use the search box at the upper right on the home page and search for your city's country.
I see that you are T2 taking shots. If you are insulin dependent you might want to visit this group
http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/insulin_dependent_type2
or if you are on Byetta or Victoza there are groups for those meds that you can find here.

Please feel at home, you are with friends

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. Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.
