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.

Welcome home Nikki!!!
This is a great place to share, to learn, and to grow...all the while meeting new people world wide, and making friends.

click on "all groups". You can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the
