HOpe all's well Amanda, haven't seen you in a while!

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
(, or
message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!

Pssst.... pass it on!

I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at If you have, do another!

Think about colours when you mixing colours
Think about flowers when you making flower necklace
Think about heart beats when you are alone

A person's appearance doesn't count. What counts is their heart inside
of them and their personality. No one wants to be told they're not
good enough

thanks for add

Hi Amanda Lynne ~

As a forty year technical theatre veteran, I usually run, not walk, away from dance shows. I think I would probably tech one of yours. We can still manage and lead an active and productive life. Sometimes, it's god to be a diabetic!

Be well
