Hello,

I was originally diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1999. I had a remission at one point but then I began to work a night shift and it came back just as quickly as it left. I have been battling to keep my numbers under control and have seen multiple doctors over the course of the years and I kept getting told the same information. I recently went to a new doctor and she gave me some great information and we are going to try the pump/monitor as well as a different form of medicine. I am hoping this will be the beginning for me to taking control of my life again.

I would like to make new friends that I can talk to about this disease and know that they understand how I feel. I hope I can be of some help to someone also. I look forward to getting to know you.
