Hi Radius:


I'm sending you this message because I see you listed as living in the Bay Area.. I'm planning on starting a Diabetes Support Group which will be open to all Types, all ages. The purpose will be to create a safe place to share the feelings, thoughts, hopes and fears we all go through as well as share insight and strength for managing our diabetes. It will be in an informal setting in Berkeley and the fee nominal.

My qualifications for facilitating this group are that I am a retired Counselor with over 25 years experience doing groups. I just returned from living for two years in Guatemala and currently teach Psychology online for a Community College.

Perhaps even more important I was misdiagnosed as Type 2 diabetic two years ago; did fine on oral meds for awhile and then my numbers started to climb. After a lot of research and a lot of talking to others I realized I was LADA/1.5 and am now stable on a basal/bolus insulin regimen. Through this experience I went through the anxiety, fear and sense of being overwhelmed by diabetes. Today I live with this disease on a daily basis with both full recognition of how it affects everything in my life and a commitment to living a full rich life outside of Diabetes.

Please contact me here or at zoelula@hotmail.com if you are interested in participating in a support group.

Hello, Radius!
Welcome to the TuDiabetes family.

We noticed you mention something about the need to enter the zip code during the registration process. Basically, this is only required IF you live in the US. If you choose any other country, this is not an option available. If you choose US as your country, a field opens up directly below the Country field, that prompts you for the zip code.

Can you explain to me what you mean about the issue you describe about the image? I don't understand well, but once I do, I will look into it to see what can be done about it.

Thanks so much, and I hope you find ALL the support and information you came here for.
