Greetings John...it'll soon be a year since your dx....how's it going? Any questions/suggestions? Take a look at some of the other groups when you get a chance!
I am part of the Welcome Committee and was just checking in on you to make sure you are aware of all that TuDiabetes has to offer. We would love to hear from you so here is a helpful link where you can read about all the things you can do in the community.
Hi Marisa Yes we're lucky here with the so called National Health, but its mainly a post code lottery in a lot of things, but I can honestly say that with the exception of when I was first diagnosed, and I went about 6 weeks without any proper knowledge at all, in fact all I got was from a website we have here 'diabetes uk.com' which learned me more than anything, but once I got in the doctors system I have a brilliant diabetes nurse Tracey, she is brilliant. Anything I want to know she lets me know and even checks my stats even when they don't need to be checked just to let me know. I did feel depressed when I was diagnosed firstly, as I thought my life was over which was daft, but I realise now I am the same as before, just watch my diet and check my blood every now and then.
