Janis, you will not be able to read the chat that occurred during the interview. They will post a video of it next week. You will be able to find it on the Tu home page (tudiabetes.org) when it is posted. It will be on the left hand side of the home page under videos below the lastest activity box.

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.
