Thank you for the welcome. I have been looking for a site for support for a long time. I have some diabetic complications plus a few other medical issues. ( to be discussed later). my biggest worry is my daughters diabetes so it is information I seek!
Hi Doris; This is Gigi60 and I wanted to say thank you for leaving me your comment and to let me know where you live. that was a very nice way to welcome me to the page. I am really so overwhelmed with this whole thing with my husband having type 2 diabetes; but I really shouldn't be since my Mom had diabetes before she passed away from congestive heart failure and we took care of her. Then I have my own health issues to deal with; cancer returned and now I have found out that I also have reh. arthritics on top of every thing else. Going to get through this; because we have to deal with this and will be okay. Again thanks for sending me the message and welcoming me to the group.
