Hello All,

Well I have had diabetes for about 20 years now and let me tell you it was no walk in the park since I was diagnosed.
I suffered from "denial" for years. I knew I had to take my insulin and test my blood sugar. But I hid it from others all the time. Many to this day would never know I have diabetes. I came across a few diabetic's and well everyone is different. But I want to meet people and learn from them and just listen to those like me looking for ideas and just know how everyone is doing with diabetes. I would love to get to know you and how you are doing with your diabetes, its nice to know there are people like me out there and seeing and learning how there are doing with there diabetes and how they deal with it every day!
I love to hear your story...

Hope to hear from you all,

Hello Sher, My story has 91 years of soul. I have been insulin-dependent, since 1977, was clinically dead, in BOSTON with a BS of 880.With my second chance, I have been on an amazing journey reaching over 40,000 as a ROLE MODEL that walks the walk and talks the talk, and still trailblazing.From my sources of diabetes experts, one thing standsout.The person that knows most bout their diabetes will LIVE the longest. 1. Have a good diabetic specialist, 2. Wear a MEDIC-ALERT bracelet, it can SPEAK for you in case of emergencies, 3.Listen to your BODY, it tells you when to eat, rest,sleep and EXERCISE, Have yourself a DIABETIC BUDDY, someone you call EVERYDAY, it can serve 2 purposes, makes someone's DAY, and SAVE A LIFE. Try out my AMIGOKIT way of forming small groups of diabetics KEEPING IN TOUCH. Call 5 diabetics,EVERYDAY, it will serve 2 purposes, letting them know SOMEONE CARES, and it could also SAVE A LIFE.Join me , in slence, JULY 30, and give THANKS for INSULIN, giving hundreds of millions a chance to live healthy lifestyles. Keep In Touch
