I was on this wonderful site three years ago. I drifted away from it, don't really know why, but anyway still here and alive and well. I see a lot of new faces on here and would be delighted to get talking to you all. I would absolutely love to get in touch with some to the old members. My old profile is still here, its Josephine O'Donnell, Ireland. ( PAGE 544 ). I look forward to chatting to you, especially my wee Robyn. Nothing much going on since. I have tried many times to lower the HbA, it came under 7% for about 5mins. I have mild kidney damage, still not sure as to the extent of it. Will find out at next appointment. Well anyways, if you are new here, on for a while or one of the gang of 2009, please get in touch. This is a great place to how can I put it, its a great place to " not need to explain it all ". we're in the one boat here. It's good to be back home again.
