I have learned a lot since finding this website about 6 months ago. Decided to join, just recently.

I have not yet figured out how to join groups, submit questions or respond to comments. I do know how to find comments that some of you have placed on "my page".

I would appreciate suggestions re. how I can learn what I need to do to join a group/s, respond to comments or submit questions - even how to respond to people's comments that I have found on "my page"

Thanks!

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.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, and...Welcome home Verna!!

This is a great place to share, to learn, and to grow...all the while meeting new people world wide, and making friends.
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in,
click on "all groups". You can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the
space provided.
Take in some of the blogs/discussions as well.
The resource boxes at the top of the home "Home" page, and
"About us" at the very bottom of your page and every page (the footer), offer you more information still.

Hope you find the support and information you came looking for.
