Just stumbled upon this wonderful website today! It's so exciting to me to find people with the same issues as I, sharing, learning and becoming friends.

I have so much to learn, and to be honest am concerned about my diagnosis. I plan to live a long and healthy life, we're just having grand kids and I want to be there when they graduate, get married and have kids. I have a lot to learn and life choices to make. It's somewhat overwhelming. But, these are the baby steps on my new healthier life!

Glad yo found out us. There is no reason why you cannot have a long and happy life. You just need to be serious about things. Watch your diet exercise check out some of the great GROUPS. I am healthy. I am happy. I am in good control and I am 85...see you will do it. Reed
