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!

Hello! I am doing okay. It is heating up here, going to have a hot summer. How are you? I am enjoying seeing out of my right eye again, had the vitrectomy the end of Nov. got my sight back in March. It was a long road, but worth it. I am going to have my granddaughters a few time this summer so I m looking forward to that. BS's have been up and down and all around..lol. Take care
