Thanks for the welcome. Really apreciate it. Told one of my nieces about this place. She's a diabetic also along with her mother. I keep after my brothers and sisters to be checked at all times. At least once a year. Took a long time for it to show on me. Already had one sister dx with it before I was. And she had been dx years before me. So runs in family. Hopefully the neice and her mother will be coming here.

Hi,I am not quite sure how to work this site yet. I am not computer literate. I have been trying to find reviews about the tslim pump from people that actually use it. I have been diabetic since 1976 and I have never met anyone else that has diabetes. It will be nice to talk to other people with diabetes and make new friends. :-) thank you for the welcome!

Y9u had asked for an address on the blog conversation and I wasn't sure which address you wanted? And if it was a name of a doctor or something, I wo9uld only do that privately - I will sing praises in public though. The Endo who got me all screwed up (changing my pump settings and goals to very non-normal results) isn't my type of healthcare provider - I am more involved and pro-active. He may be perfect for someone who needs and wants hand-holding. I just want the Rx's! Oh, we love our pugs too! Recently rescued pug number 3 a brindle boy. I now have my own herd!

Hi there Ricky, I'm glad to be back, missed ya! I just loved your blog on hashtags. I know, I know, my comment was a little too serious. But it makes a big difference to use hashtags effectively. I think it would be the most COOL thing this year if we could get #BigBlueTest to TREND Nationally. Glad you friended Mel, I just love her. she was lead admin when I became one, and she ran a really tight ship, I'll tell you. but if you needed her, she was right there for you.

anyway, keep up the great work you do here. I'd have you featured every other week if it were up to me. hugs!

Thank you, Rick.
Hopefully I will finally find others that are as frustrated and anxious as I am about being newly "diagnosed" with the diabetes stuff.

Thank you. That's a very kind welcome. Are there others on this site who have had experience with an islet cell transplant?
