so glad you're finding the site helpful. Manny created Tu 5 years ago so that PWDs (people with diabetes) would not have to ever feel alone. I had certainly been alone with mine for years when I joined.

oh, we are having a live chat Friday afternoon

and the chat room will be open (hopefully) the entire weekend. an excellent chance to get to know us better and perhaps get some answers to those questions I'm sure you have. hope to see you around!
