Our diagnosis

Anger, so much anger

Blast of a new world.

Cheated, we were cheated

Dangerously torn.

Evil, this is evil

Frozen there we stood

Ground fading under our feet

Having heard what it was.

I cried and cried my eyes out

Jolly folks we were, not

Knowing what it…

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or
message to jrtpup on her page.

Thanks my friends!
