Lol, I had no idea this was you. Now I see you changed your name to Mikey. Might have made me think twice but the whiole profile was new so I figured you were too. Hope you've been well.

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.
