I realize the topic has probably been discussed 1000's of times, but, I am new to the group and to the DOC in general. I am a Type 1 and have been for almost 37 years, but I am not sure that I have…Continue
"I am very glad you are here David. You have a clear and concise way of writing that I can really related to-I am a Type 1-but it is really all the same and we are in it together. I look forward to learning more about you and hearing about your…"

"Oh No, no & no again Natalie-not alone at all. I have been right there and have days that if I wasn't scared to death of dying (???) I might go right back.
I think, at least for me it is true, we must remember-there is very much an…"

I'm not actually a member of DiaBlog, but I was reading the blogs, etc., for the fun of it. I discovered the site when they were already talking about closing down at the end of August. Always a shame to lose a good diabetes site, but I love TuDiabetes! Be talking to you...
Hi Woodfairy. Thanks for the friend invite, I'm really happy to accept. I've enjoyed reading some of your posting as well, including at MyDiaBlog. The non-dog photos were taken near Yellowstone, the others in our yard or a nearby park -- glad you like them. We now have the three Goldens, important members of our family. Cheers.
