Wow! I thought there were several of us here. MA, we're still praying and sending all the vibes we can muster for you and Mike.
If it works, here's
a link to the diabetic social group....come on in and talk, I don't want to talk to myself!
And a thought.....although both being overweight and having anyone in your family who has diabetes GREATLY increases your chances of developing this disease, don't let that fool you into a sense of security if you're healthy and have no family history of it. I know of two diabetics who took care of themselves, ate a healthy diet, had no family history of it....and still wound up with it! The dr's told them that they were "unusual" but not unheard of. (one of them died recently, he wound up with pancreatic cancer a couple of years back :-().
Misty8723, that's one reason I asked the question, and started the social group....hoping that maybe 'with a little help from our friends' those of us who don't take care of ourselves like we should might find some motivation, support, even just an ear to listen sometimes, to take care of ourselves. Like CarolPetunia said, there are other forums for it, we all know each other already!
